Local Panhandler Ron Gross on Recent Cleanup Near Carbondale

December 17, 2012
Earlier this month, State Highway Patrol officers and officials from the Colorado Department of Transportation conducted a "clean up" of a homeless encampment beneath the bridge near the intersection of highway 82 and 133. The camp was a hangout for several individuals who panhandle regularly at the intersection, and the cleanup came just days after Carbondale trustees discussed the panhandling issue at a public meeting.

Ron Gross was living under the bridge when the cleanup occurred, and KDNK's Nelson Harvey caught up with him recently to ask what happened.
