Oregon chooses to legalize drugs that contribute to a majority of homeless issues. I guess the majority of the people should support providing for their welfare.

hundreds of homeless have full time jobs and are not drug users, they simply cannot afford the outrageous cost of living in our crap society!!

You either pay for the services or pay to clean up the mess later...which is easier?

It's simple. Everyone needs trash service and toilets. And if our city is serious about addressing houselessness, this is how we start.

As a civilized society we don't want people dying in the streets. Yes some have drug and alcohol problems, but some are just hard on their luck. Be Christ like people.

The house less people are part of our community and since the transient camp was unable to be built thanks to NIMBYs, we should absolutely provide basic humanitarian resources such as sanitation and bathrooms for these fellow humans. I fully support my tax dollars being used for this purpose.

We need to help those in need and find a way to get them the help they need we need to create a camp for the homeless in or near town with portable potties showers and garbage and close to medical and psychological services. Help give them a hand up.

The more free services that are provided makes going to work not an option. There is work out there.

No! Our "woke" community is turning this city into another Seattle/Portland. These people "network" with each other around the country. They know where to go for the best handouts. The vast majority of these people are NOT bendites. The handling of this has been pathetically shortsighted.

There are MANY services offered. Maybe a bus ticket to somewhere they can afford or find work? The camps need to be eradicated.

The state should pay - I agree we need to tackle the problem, but let's not let Bend turn into Portland :(

Why should Bend pay the entire bill? How about split it with the State and the cities where the homeless originate?

What for? The first case to arrive in the US was a fully vaccinated person. Those in Africa who have not been vaccinated have no symptoms where as the vaccinated do have symptoms although mild. "According to Assistant Minister Sethomo Lelatisitswe, Botswana"

Have seen to many side effects with this vaccine and believe it should be a personal choice. Wonder how fast everyone would be to praise passports for people with "aids". Medical information should remain PRIVATE period.

Enough of government control over our lives. Government and media have really no idea what is going on with this , too many flip flops on policy.

Everyone should read 1984. Big brother knows your every move. In fact you buy the eyes and ears that track everything you say and do. Want to know where you went last month just Google it.
