    Transparency on this item would be good with a breakdown of how the funds are being spent and on what.

    Given we have no visibility into how funds are spent in this "crisis", I oppose further spending until we are given visibility into funds spent. These expenditures are not "saving lives", especially funds being sought for homeless. You ask for more dollars for homeless when there are already state and federal funding for this population distributed. Further, Council has allowed encampments to grow out of control in size and in trash. Fund the police.

    I support with reservations. Would prefer the 83K be used to place shelter over people not encourage encampment.

    Every program and every expenditure does not "save lives". While Joy is a good person with great intentions, we are about to face one of the most serious financial emergencies, maybe in the history of Chico. Every dime we spend now will come back to haunt us soon. Businesses are certainly not spending as if this situation doesn't exist, and our city Government better take a lesson. How are we dealing with the economic emergency facing Chico?

    Would like to be kept informed on a regular basis as to how these funds are allocated. Who is getting paid, how much, for what specific reason. Similar to the accounting documents posted by CARD for Board of Director meetings. They show every single check written. I appreciate this as it is my tax $ being spent. Thank you.

    If we need money to save lives, then we need money to save Iives. Please do the right thing for ALL of our community, that includes poor/homeless/addicted that have the smallest voice. Thank you, stay well.

    What is this funding designated for? Why is this information (fiscal designation) not available for public commment?
