DURHAM, N.C. — Panhandling between sunset and sunrise will soon be off-limits in the Bull City.
The Durham City Council approved an ordinance banning nighttime begging and makes it a misdemeanor.
Council members say a concern for public safety is behind the measure.
The ban goes into effect next week.
