A controversial plan to solve the homeless crisis has people fired up in Sonoma County where officials plan to spend millions of dollars to buy three properties that would be used to house the homeless.
The Sonoma County board of supervisors approved the spending of nearly $12 million to buy or lease housing for the homeless back in December.
Frustrated residents are voicing outrage over a plan that evicts existing renters, making them homeless, only to then give those same homes to other already homeless people. Only in California could this make sense!
Recent statistics show there are over 3,000 homeless people living in Sonoma County, with new figures due out in February.
