Garberville Gold

Farmer’s Market

Ernie’s started a new blog, Garberville, to discuss the wonderful and not so wonderful parts about the town of Garberville.  Currently, the major point seems to be the homeless/transient problem.

We have been having town meetings lately, because tempers are beginning to flare and we need some solutions. The homeless have become an unbearable burden to some, and it is apparent to most that our businesses are being damaged.

He offers some suggestions to get the ball rolling.

Now, we need a fair plan to clean up our town. I would like to take suggestions. Some that I’ve heard, is that a person can’t loiter. Sidewalks are for walking and standing, no sitting or napping on the curb. It is not a storage area. No back-packs or bed rolls laying around. Call in problems, and have ALL shoplifters arrested. Make security tapes of shoplifters made available to the sheriff dept. AND other merchants

    People curious about the actuality of the second meeting can view the entire thing on Youtube. The “breakdown” happens at around 43 minutes in. It is encouraging that even after the walk out of certain people, people with a desire to continue to seek solutions stayed. More meetings will be happening.

  • Thank-you Kym
    There are people out there that are seeking real solutions, with a real handycap toilet, in an acceptable , and central location. The shower will never happen. People are working hard to solve this that were not even at that meeting. As much as I admire many of people that wasted their time going to that meeting. I am glad that I left when I did.
