Posted November 18, 2003 11:50 a.m. EST

— Starting next year, panhandlers and those selling newspapers will need permits to stand on Durham street corners.

The Durham City Council passed a plan to regulate panhandling Monday.

Anyone asking for money or selling papers will have to pay $20 for a permit. They will be required to wear that permit, a picture ID and an orange safety vest.

Soliciting will be limited to daylight hours.
