GREENFIELD, Ind. - More than 1,100 central Indiana families look forward to Labor Day weekend every year as a time to raise money for a cause close to their hearts.
For years, the Greenfield Fire Department has used the intersection of U.S. 40 and State Road 9 to collect donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
This year, the 'Fill the Boot' campaign has hit a roadblock. A city ordinance now prohibits roadside solicitation. It was put into place to end panhandling on the streets.
The other hurdle is the growing liability of the firefighters and the city.
"I believe in what they are doing, but I have an obligation to the citizens of Greenfield," Greenfield Mayor Chuck Fewell said.
The fire department said this won’t stop them -- they will work with the city to find a solution.
In the meantime, firefighters will be accepting donations at their stations. Last year the department raised $17,000 for the MDA.
