Occupy Lexington protesters generally comply with city's requests

City government has made several requests of the Occupy Lexington protesters who are encamped outside Chase Bank on Main Street, and "generally, they've complied," said Susan Straub, spokeswoman for Mayor Jim Gray.

She said the city has asked the demonstrators to keep the area clean, not to sleep on or block the sidewalk, and not to block the entrances to businesses.

"They've been peaceful," she said.

Some other cities have moved to evict the demonstrators.

"We haven't made any other plans for them," Straub said Tuesday afternoon.

About 70 people regularly gather at the protest site. The protest started in Lexington on Sept. 29.
