Five People Qualify To Be Excluded

ASHLAND, Ore. — Five people are on the list to be banned from downtown Ashland. The police chief said the majority of the violators have failed repeatedly to show up to court.

These individuals have been breaking various city rules, like defecating in public, trespassing or furnishing alcohol to a minor. Two out of five have been transients.

“I think only one of them didn’t take it well, but we haven’t had any uses of force related to that and some of them have accepted the service,” said Ashland Police Chief Terry Holderness.

The exclusion zone ordinance took effect in July. Those cited get a pamphlet from officers listing all of the violations and rules under the new law.
