DALLAS — Here's a sign that the city of Dallas is growing weary of Occupy Dallas protesters.

On Tuesday, the city sent out a formal notice to the group's legal representative. The city said there is "great concern" about what it calls ongoing breaches of an agreement they reached with the protesters last month at their campsite in the shadow of City Hall.

The city's complaint specifically cited these violations:

  • semi-permanent structures and signs
  • use of City Hall facilities
  • failure to properly dispose of trash
  • tents erected in unauthorized areas

"The City reserves the right to terminate the settlement agreement and enforce all laws on the property, including removing any tents and other obstructions on property that are not promptly removed by Occupy Dallas after receipt of a request to do so by the city," said a letter signed by City Manager Mary Suhm.

The city has given Occupy Dallas until 5 p.m. Saturday to remedy all of the problems.
