After years now of having only a women’s shelter for the homeless and wasting a lot of government money on motels at $80 a night for the men, maybe they should approve the next attempt to put up a men’s shelter or even a shelter for men and women!

I mean, $80 a night adds up to $2,400 a month and up to $29,200 a year — and that is only for one man!

There are far more than that who end up needing shelter here.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
