Columbus is host to the National Hockey League All Star game this week-end. The NHL showcase will bring thousands fans and visitors to the city as well as international media attention.
City crews clear homeless from downtown locations
Columbus refuse and fire crews today cleaned-up and disinfected sidewalks beneath railroad trestles in the 300 block of West State Street. The area is near the now-closed Open Shelter for men.
Each day an estimated 30 or more individuals seek shade or protection from wind and rain.
The city action was the first clean-up of the area since the Open Shelter was closed on June 30th.
