The city cant clear side streets of snow because there's no money in the budget but theres money in the budget for this.


Who can be charged and how likely are they going to pay? I can just imagine how much money it would take to try and collect from someone that has just lost 1/2 their net worth by being vacated.
It would be cheaper for the tax payers if it wasn't allowed to happen in the first place.

How about the drug dealers and druggies that get busted for theft provide community service to cleaning up these camps.

The homeless are just a symptom of the free-enterprise system doing what it does best. It allows the most fit to survive and allows those who can't prosper to sink to the bottom and lose pretty much everything. It's the way we've always lived but now we are bumping up against the ability of the earth to support 10 billion people.

Those that are on the "Community Service" program should have to go in and spend their hours cleaning up this mess.
