City won't appeal camping rulingThe city of Victoria will not appeal a court ruling which upholds the right of homeless to set up tents in parks.
"Appealing this ruling does nothing to solve homelessness, and the real goal for this council is to ensure that all members of the community have a home," Mayor Dean Fortin said. "For us there is no win in appealing."

This morning, I'm getting ready for an appellate argument in the Orlando homeless feeding case ... and wishing my city would chose to spend the costs of its appeal on solving the problem of homelessness instead of continuing a court battle that's lasted more than three years. Oh, well.
