I don't know who is good at this sort of stuff, or if we should make a comment to the city, but they are likely to adopt an ordinance that would outlaw "storage of personal property in public lands". This sounds like it would make geocaching illegal on public property in Anoka.

It seems like this is specifically targeting the homeless community and abandonment of garbage. I am not a legal expert, but caching is allowed per the rules governing Anoka County Parks, so that should be safe at least.
