Spokane providing 6 portable toilets for homeless


SPOKANE (AP) — The city of Spokane is placing six portable toilets under an elevated section of Interstate 90 where homeless people congregate. City Council President Ben Stuckart says it’s a response to complaints about human waste outside businesses in the downtown area. But Stuckart told KXLY he opposes a proposal from homeless advocate Ralph Harvey to create a regulated tent city where people could camp.

He says tent cities attract the “wrong element.”
