Homeless camp will be allowed to stay open for now

A make-shift campground for the homeless in Esambia County will be allowed to stay put until a court hearing next month.

County officers, and neighbors of the nine-acre parcel in the Mayfair community asked a special magistrate today to close the place down.
They claim it violates codes, and is a health hazard.
