Councilman Larry Black asked his fellow elected officials Monday night to consider an "urban camping" ordinance, which would make it illegal to live under U. Route 41 in Ringgold, next to South Chickamauga Creek. Black said residents complain that the population — currently four people — bothers neighbors and charges its cellphones outside the Ingles down the road. Under an ordinance, Ringgold police officers could warn the homeless they are in violation of city code.
