Homeless camp in Mayfair communtiy allowed to stay open

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

Tuesday county officers, and neighbors of the nine acre parcel in the Mayfair community asked a special magistrate to close the place down.
They claim it violates codes, and is a health hazard that sits too close to homes.

Tuesday the special Magistrate ruled the camp does *not pose an emergency threat, and scheduled another code enforcement hearing on the matter for February 11th.
