On Monday night the Spokane City Council voted to ban panhandlers from the streets of downtown.
The ordinance will also prohibit Spokane's Guilds' School from its annual penny drive and Muscular Dystrophy’s Fill the Boot campaign.
The council said the ordinance was put in place because of safety issues.
Some community members, however, said the issue was "about putting a new face on Spokane."
