San Francisco lawmakers order mayor to lease hotel rooms for homeless

San Francisco lawmakers have ordered the mayor to secure 7,000 hotel rooms to house the city’s homeless population, plus another 1,250 rooms for frontline workers by 26 April. The emergency ordinance passed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors requires Mayor London Breed to use emergency powers to commandeer the rooms if she is unable to reach deals with hotel owners.

Damn, feel sorry for whoever has to clean those rooms afterwards. Crazy, drug using criminals don't tend to be easy on thier environments.

What we call "homeless" today used to be called "mental patients". The vast majority of them should be locked up for their own safety. A good chunk of them put in jail for vagrancy and public intoxication, and a few for bigger and more serious crimes.

Keep an eye on the hotel they eventually use to house the homeless folks, in 2 or three years time after it's been condemned because feces and rats it will be bought at auction for pennies and turned into a beach side cafe or something ridiculously luxurious.

I hope the owners can sue the city over the damages that will occur during this. Every week the property will receive more and more damage and it will be acumuative getting worse and worse because the cops already have little authority to police these communities. By the second week the level of crime and many mentally ill in that community will make these places a complete wreak. Hope I'm wrong

Considering that most hotels have furloughed their staff since there were a nonessential industry, how do they expect the may to find that many serviceable rooms, let alone from hotels willing to incur the damage. San Fransiscos current laws regarding misdemeanor theft and property damage make this very infeasible to maintain.

Nothing makes sense of letting the homeless use hotels. More money wasted on something that could have been used ft something else.

Letting homeless people live on the streets has backfired. Imagine that. No one could possibly seen that coming. And kudos to the CA Supreme Court for making sure they could live where they wanted. Isn't removing them from their "homes" against the law?

Don’t forget there’s a lot more people at risk of eviction right now. Despite the moratorium, not all evictions are prevented. I hope this is a way for those people at risk to, while everything else is really uncertain, at least have access to shelter.

Based. Time for solutions to this crisis besides printing money for corporations as they still last people off into homeless status.
