I am pleased with the recent news of Chico's financial status and commend the Council for their excellent work in keeping our city financially sound. My idea for outreach is that the City set up a "Day Center" for the homeless population, similar to the model used by the Sheriff's Dept under Prop 29. This would give them and all service providers a central point for management and accessing community resources. All providers, including Social Services, would be accessible in one place. I would also like to see the City to concentrate on short term goals with colder months ahead.
