News & Notes

Riverbank police intend to evict illegal campers along the Stanislaus River more frequently. Because homeless camps can bring drug and sanitation problems and increase the threat of fire, police will step up eviction sweeps from once to three times a year, Police Chief Erin Kiely says in a report going before City Council members Tuesday. Officers also plan to involve California Department of Fish and Wildlife rangers, and to hand out information on community resources for vagrants, such as soup kitchens and homeless shelters, the report says. The council also will hear an update on efforts to combat graffiti. Tuesday’s meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the council chamber at 6707 Third St. For more information, see http://bit.ly/ShJIlW.
