SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — 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 KXLY (http://bit.ly/TWwlFe) 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."
