City to put homeless in hotels

Short of sufficient shelter spaces for the homeless, the city plans to provide temporary housing in hotels, which have been pretty empty anyway. There hasn’t been much in the news lately about the tent encampments, except this piece in Metro on October 6 about organizations taking up collections to provide more tents. In this report it says the city recognizes there are twice as many homeless people now as at the start of the pandemic, which is why the camps have been growing, and popping up in new parts of town. But winter is coming.
