Some folks are determined
A Fort Myers councilman and a group of human-service agencies and volunteers are pitching a plan they hope will kill a proposed ordinance restricting the feeding of the homeless in public parks.
to feed Fort Myers' homeless
The issue has been gnawing at Councilman Warren Wright, who worries the city is courting the rich while shunning the poor.
Together, these activists have come up with a plan they hope will not only stave off the ordinance, but provide better services to the needy. They want to move the informal, open-air feedings into the soup kitchen and Salvation Army -- which already provide the majority of meals for the hungry and homeless. Directors say assistance from church and community groups could help expand the number of meals they offer.
The issue goes back before the council March 19.
