On September 16, 2014 you passed an ordinance that prohibits feeding the homeless and all citizens are now subject to arrest for doing so. It is understood that the ordinance demands the homeless be feed indoors but this is not always possible. Many homeless people are people that could be better assisted. Some may need Psychiatricl help. Others are homeless veterans and people that may be addicted to narcotics. With all the economic problems our county is facing, giving food to hungry people that are struggling should never be a crime! When we arrest people, or when they are given a citation, this cost of tax payers money and contribute to an already overburdened legal system. We should be using our tax money to promote incentives to chuches and these organizations you suggest we donate to. We demand the removal of these heartless ordinances an in it's place make better choices on where we can help our homeless and instead assist them and lead them to the programs that could help them get off the streets.
