The Lincoln City Council has voted to ban outdoor donation huts that primarily benefit for-profit companies rather than the charities they've contracted with.
The council voted 6-1 Monday to approve the ban.
Backers of the new ordinance say the 80 donation huts across Lincoln deceive donors. March of Dimes is the charity listed on the huts, but 90 percent of the gross revenue goes to a for-profit company that sets up the huts.
The ordinance gives the for-profit company 90 days to remove the huts from Lincoln.
