Sidewalk campers out, food carts in at City Hall
At the behest of Mayor Charlie Hales, the courtyard at Portland City Hall will get food carts.
The mayors spokesman Dana Haynes announced Monday that Al Forno Ferruzza, Saigon Noodle and Olympic Provisions will offer food cart service at City Hall.
Mayor Hales wants City Hall to be a lively, civic space for all, and giving a portion of this space over to food vendors and tables is a step towards that, Haynes says.
Hales earlier ordered the removal of protesters who were camping out on the sidewalk outside City Hall.
