The Reno City Council…

…held their first in-person council meeting in over a year. An event I expected to be more of a celebration. Instead, it was somewhat subdued. No cake, noise makers or funny hats. I guess I had high expectations. There were maybe 15 people in the gallery at the beginning for Public Comment. Most of them were there to complain about the homeless situation. At one point there were just three of us in the gallery.

Because of the increase in the number of homeless in our area, the city and county governments have been spending a lot of taxpayer funds lately on the issue in an attempt to relieve the homeless situation. But, like anything in government, you can’t please everyone. And there are some unhappy people

Outside of City Hall there was a protest. With the opening of a new Homeless Shelter, local law enforcement are out sweeping homeless camps along the river in an attempt to encourage them to seek help at the new facility. It isn’t going well…
