City Council members failed to override the mayor’s veto.

DENVER — The Denver City Council on Monday failed to override Mayor Mike Johnston’s veto of a bill intended to ban moving homeless people off the streets in frigid temperatures.

The ordinance would have prevented the city from moving homeless people —or sweeping encampments — from outdoor living situations in temperatures below 32 degrees.

The council approved the bill by a seven-to-six vote two weeks ago. Johnston then vetoed the measure, meaning the council needed nine votes to override his decision.

Council members again voted seven to six on Monday.

The banning of homeless sweeps under 32 degrees represents the council’s third failed veto override vote in 13 years.
