Health Concerns Could Result In Toilet Deal For Sonora Homeless Camp
Sonora, CA – A deal is being flushed out on whether to possibly install portable toilets at a Sonora homeless camp with the city chipping in some funds.
The camp is off of Stockton Road as outlined in the map below.
The city council will vote on whether to fund a 1/3 of the cost, up to $1,600, at its Monday meeting. The bathroom’s yearly total would range between six and seven thousand dollars.
The city would be teaming up with the charity, Give Someone A Chance, the same organization the runs the shower bus detailed here. They will manage cleaning and any possible repairs the stalls may need.
Agenda documents support the proposal arguing that this will protect and promote the health, safety and general welfare of the Sonora’s homeless population and in turn the community. Any agreement reached will last for one year and will be up for review after that time.
Monday’s regular session meeting at city hall begins at 5pm.
