Des Moines plans services for ousted homeless

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The deadline has arrived for homeless people to leave their camps along the Des Moines and Raccoon rivers in Des Moines.

Earlier this month, an administrative law judge ruled that the city can legally evict homeless residents who received notices. The city plans to clean up the areas on Monday.

The city has said the notices followed complaints from people who use bike paths in addition to concerns from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regarding damage to levees. Council member Robert "Bob" Mahaffey says the city is trying to protect public property.

The city plans to help residents of the camps access social services. The city also plans to hire a coordinator to work with the homeless.
