Mid-Year Budget Requests

I’ve written an open letter to my colleagues and city management outlining several basic necessities that I believe should be addressed as we evaluate Sacramento’s mid-year budget.

That letter can be read here.

We will need your support to see this through. If you agree with what I’ve outlined in this letter, please take a moment and sign on to it.

These sites are certainly a tremendous step in the right direction, but we are looking for other sites as well to accommodate the significant demand for these kinds of services. The City of Sacramento recently voted to move forward on a Comprehensive Siting Plan, which charges each district in the City with identifying sites that can be used for safe shelter or transitional housing.
