Comparing 2 Perspectives
Jamie is a county board member. Over the last few years the homeless population has increased across the county. There were not enough beds at the local homeless shelters to begin with and now there are even more people in need of these beds. As a result of these factors, small tent communities have started to spring up in abandoned lots.
Many people have voiced their concerns regarding safety, potential drug use, and health issues. Another board member has proposed a resolution banning these tent communities in the county. If this passes, police will be ordered to give the homeless five days to vacate the property or they will be forcibly removed. Additionally, there are still no additional beds or locations for these homeless individuals to sleep.
