    The county might be forced to remove this homeless camp on a lot between Ponahawai and Mamo streets in downtown Hilo if the property owners do not appeal a court order or remove it themselves.

A Hilo judge signed an order last week that would compel two Big Island property owners to clear a homeless camp from downtown Hilo, but they can still appeal the court’s decision.
