WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Officials in West Palm Beach are hoping a continuous loop of childrens songs played throughout the night will keep homeless people from sleeping in a city park.
West Palm Beach parks and recreation director Leah Rockwell tells the Palm Beach Post theyre trying to discourage people from camping out along the glass-walled Lake Pavilion. She says the pavilion rakes in some $240,000 annually from events.
The loop of Baby Shark and Raining Tacos is a temporary fix to keep homeless people off the patio. Rockwell says the city wants to formalize hours for the park, which should make trespassing laws easier to enforce.
