LAKEWOOD - The tent city in Lakewood, once called an eyesore, has been cleaned up.

The Department of Public Works spent the day at the homeless encampment, repairing roads and cleaning up abandoned tents.

A legal battle is continuing over the use of tent city between Lakewood's governing body and the homeless campers.

The residents say police have been checking in on them for their resident passes.

Steve Brigham, the minister at the tent city, says the cold weather brings in more danger. "Most of the people who've been here a while have wood stoves and if they build a fire in their wood stove they can be fined and maybe arrested," he says.

About six or seven campers were removed over the weekend.
