They’re also working with fire chief to establish fire prevention at the camp. City council members are forming a special committee to address the problem and the deadline to serve on the committee is april 29.
Meanwhile… the city is forced to keep the camp open until they can provide enough shelter for everyone living there.

The public then has 90-days to comment. A recent poll indicates a large majority of Californians oppose more drilling off the state’s coast
