St. Cloud: Keep those couches inside your houses

November 19, 2013
Associated Press

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — The city of St. Cloud says there's a place for couches, and it's not on people's porches.

The City Council has banned putting furniture designed for interior use outdoors on private property -- or next to a public right of way.

The St. Cloud Times reports (http://on.sctimes.com/1aCniRy ) that the move follows increasing concern about the practice in the city's core neighborhoods.

One resident, Mary Mathews, said at a public hearing that such an ordinance used to exist and she was glad to see it return. Mathews said it's not just a concern about appearance. She said upholstered furniture can become a health and safety hazard, including being a target for arson.
