ONTARIO - Crews from the Ontario Public Works Department and Oregon Department of Transportation cut through brush and debris on public property along the river Monday.

The effort was announced last week and homeless campers were given several days’ notice to gather their belongings and leave.

City officials passed out a tip sheet listing services available to those being evicted from the camps.
