Taxpayers in Sacramento, California are poised to spend upwards of $400,000 to clean-up homeless encampments across the Capital; picking up garbage and removing waste as the region’s homeless crisis continues to escalate.
In a 6-0 vote, the Sacramento City Council approved the measure after residents complained about the homeless camps; citing drug use, violence, and unsanitary conditions throughout the city.
"If we’re going to clean up one place, we should clean up everywhere in the city, not just downtown and the River District,” said one councilman. “We put the priorities on these two areas to the detriment of other areas of the city.”
“It is not an all-or-nothing approach here,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg said. “It’s not just help the people on the streets, but ignore the impact of homelessness. There are times when enforcement is, in fact, appropriate and certainly cleanup and addressing the impact of homelessness on the neighbors and on the businesses is absolutely essential.”
