Are Panhandlers an 'Eyesore' in Milford?
A Milford resident has created a petition for 'action against panhandling in Milford, CT.' The argument has been outlined in a post by Milford Patch user  Lawrence Reynolds titled 'Stop the "homeless, hungry" scam plague!"

Check out the petition's argument below:

Many of these 'regulars' appear to hardly be homeless sporting clean clothes, haircuts, and cellphones. Panhandling should not be allowed in Milford. It is an eyesore to our community. If these people are truly homeless there are many reasonable options available in milford and the surrounding towns for them. I have offered medium type labor work to one of them for a day at a rate of 10/hr and he refused. That leads me to believe he is not homeless and likely doing better behind the scenes than many others in Milford who are actually working hard for their income. Please sign and repost through any media available to you. Our city needs to take action against panhandling.

So far the petition has garnered 6 signatures. The goal is to reach 1,000.
