Spokane providing 6 portable toilets for homeless

SPOKANE — The city of Spokane is placing six portable toilets under an elevated section of Interstate 90 where homeless people congregate.
City Council President Ben Stuckart says it’s a response to complaints about human waste outside businesses in the downtown area.
But Stuckart told a news reporter he opposes a proposal from homeless advocate Ralph Harvey to create a regulated tent city where people could camp under the freeway. He says tent cities attract the “wrong element.”
