Why no homeless shelter?


Dear Editor,

I would like for the Sedalia City administrators and Pettis County officials to tell the residents of this area why we can spend thousands of dollars on such things as the “arch,” demolish private property, etc, while we do not have a homeless shelter.

We are building a new shelter for unwanted pets – why not a shelter for the homeless?

There are empty buildings scattered throughout the area. Is it any wonder that some are broken into by those who have no other shelter?

A church leader told me that some of the church leaders of the area had discussed this need. Is talk going to keep the homeless warm and dry this winter?
