ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque officials are putting the wheels in motion to evict residents of the so-called “Tent City” homeless encampment.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://goo.gl/8l50Hf ) reports that police and other city employees on Monday placed eviction notices on tents and in other locations in the encampment.

The notices say the city will invoke a state law to go to court to evict the campers if they refuse to leave.

The encampment has been declining in size from about 30 tents in January to about a dozen as of Monday.

Nonprofit groups have distributed temporary vouchers that allow people to stay in a motel.
