Ad-Hoc Committee Will Focus On Homeless Issues In Shasta County

How much local control should a county have when it comes to homeless funding? A lot, according to the California State Association of Counties, which is recommending that each county form an ad-hoc committee in its jurisdiction to form a plan to deal with homeless issues locally. On Tuesday night the Redding City Council appointed Tenessa Audette and Jack Munns to Shasta County’s committee which will also include County Supervisors Patrick Jones and Kevin Crye, two members from the City Councils of Shasta Lake and Anderson, the City Managers and the County CEO. The first meeting will be sometime next week.
