The St. Paul City Council passed a resolution at its Wednesday meeting that will allow downtown property owners to develop shared arrangements regarding skyway security.

The resolution passed six to one.

The resolution also requires the city's Department of Safety and Inspections to work with skyway easement property owners - educating them on the changes.

Earlier this year, the council denied requests to allow building owners along the skyway to lock their buildings during skyway hours.

The issue arose after Jaunae Brooks, owner of the Railroad Printing building on Sixth Street, locked her doors earlier this spring.

She said she based her decision on safety and health issues, after problems with the homeless.

"I've had to clean up human feces, pee, needles from drug use and just trash everywhere," Brooks said in a previous interview.
