March 5, 2009 8:18:50 AM PST
The Laguna Beach City Council has voted to repeal its ban on sleeping on Laguna Beach streets.It's a victory for the ACLU and the homeless in Laguna Beach. The ACLU had filed a lawsuit late last year, calling the ban unconstitutional and a harassment of the disabled homeless.

The city is forming a task force to address the issue of homelessness in the coastal community.

There are about 30 to 60 homeless who use the Laguna Beach streets.
