How much can the Killeen City Council give to help the homeless shelter reopen?

That was the question during the Tuesday council workshop meeting with representatives from the Friends In Crisis homeless shelter.

I’m against any further funding under current management and ownership. For 125 a day per person we can rent them a room at area hotels that have free breakfast and buy them lunch and dinner.. places that actually pay taxes...Disperse them and remove the concentrations of homelessness in old town Killeen.. then and maybe then businesses will return and begin to pay sales taxes instead of the free ride the city created that has cost us over $2 million dollars so far.. the other groups who provide similar services get zero and some how they stay open... hmmm. Here we go hand picking winners again.. way to go city. Everyone else they careless about. Quit wasting money .. it’s not yours to waste.
