At least the city is trying some things, and the things it's trying are based on some evidence, not just opinions.
It's not that helpful to constantly criticize other people's efforts and not offer any constructive suggestions or ideas or even help out. Got a better idea? Pitch in with it. Problems are rarely solved by punitive and judgmental attitudes.
I agree that it would be helpful to see an accounting for what was spent and by whom.
I'd like to see some way to make it easier for homeowners to add units, like MIL or extra bedrooms, to existing houses. I'd like to see support for developers who want to build infill housing, near the bus lines, services, stores, schools.
The poor will always be with us. Obnoxious people are just as frequently rich as they are poor, the poor don't have a monopoly on being irresponsible, disgusting, whatever negative human characteristic you can think of. They just have less ability to cover it up or hide it or pay people off or move to another town.
I hope that the voters read this article and vote according to how they think the city of Eureka and County Supervisors have spent tax dollars in the best interest of all citizens of this City and County. The problem with the homeless is they dont take responsibility period. In three months in Palco Marsh, they accumulated what 60 tons of trash, 4000 needles, etc. Moving them keeps the trash down. The problem is not where they live, but how they live. They dont clean up after themselves. As a tax payer I resent that. They have all the time in the world to clean up their camps. They would rather live in filth than do anything for themselves. They leave it up to the good citizens to pay for cleaning up after them. What does the council and supervisors behavior teach them. It teaches them to be irresponsible and dependent. It teaches them the council can not commit to their own decisions. I have read repeatedly this does not cost the City of Eureka anything. That is pure bullshit and everyone knows it. I have not seen any accounting for the money spent by the City or County for policing, sanitation, clean up, maintenance repair and staff time devoted to this issue. There is no accounting for the funds given by both the City and County to Betty Chin. Now someone tell me of any governmental program where there is no accountability. I worked in social services for 30 years as a manager and any program I was involved in, we were required to show how the funds were spent. We had specific goals to accomplish that lead to improving a problem. So when you go to the polls and vote in the future vote for those that support your view of how this situation should be handled.
"True mental health issues on their own are rarely debilitating," the coroner says. What is that supposed to mean?
I was there and Eric acted like a jerk. He didnt even look my way when I asked him why are you here??

From the county's website: "Payment to jurors begins on the second and subsequent days. You will not get paid on the first day of service. The minimum amount paid is set by the State Legislature. The county pays $15.00 per day plus .34 cents per mile one-way from home....
Some employers may pay the difference between your jury allowance and your salary. For example, if your salary for the day is $35.00 and the jury fee is $15.00, your employer may pay $20.00. However, this is not required by law."... and nobody does.
Mystery solved! If they want people to show, why don't you pay them NOT $15 a day... who in their right mind is gonna show up for that? It's also pretty pertinent information to exclude from an article about this...
Here is a prayer song that HSU grad, Hannah Ford has dedicated to abducted Humboldt County Aid Worker, Jeff Woodke. Please add your heart's cry to this prayer, if you will. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMonbg2DUcQ
I don't get why some of you think it was an injustice to close that place down. I remember driving past it as a little kid going to and from the mall, always noting how filthy and destitute it looked.
Now I'm in my 30s, and I'm quite happy that such a place (which only enables people to continue living in squalor) has been boarded up. It was nothing but a festering eyesore for everyone driving through Eureka to see. It was bad for the city, as well as the poor souls who had to call such a place a home.
It has been a year and a half since this was first posted, so I hope that means people like Guy Anderson went on to get the help they needed.
