FOX San Antonio - FOLLOW UP STORIES
By: Fox S.A. Staff
It's a refuge for people who live on the streets of San Antonio. But not everyone sees haven for hope as a blessing. Neighbors who live near the west side homeless campus voiced their concerns at a public meeting tonight. They're concerned about vandalism and lewd behavior that has spread into their community.
District 5 Councilman David Medina said, "This is happening outside the walls of the Haven and that's city property so we need to be able to work to address that inorder to support our neighboring residents but at the same time our non-profits trying to help the homeless in our community."
Police Chief William McManus says his officers issue citations and make arrests when they can. He and code compliance officials offered to help the community organize efforts to clean up the area.
Gov. Perry to address business forum
May 22, 2013 08:14 GMT
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Gov. Rick Perry is delivering the keynote address at the Governor's Small Business Forum's 2013 Texas Global Business Summit.
Wednesday's event in Austin comes as the state Legislature enters its final, frantic days before the end of the session Monday.
Perry has the option of summoning lawmakers back to work for a special session later this summer.
He has said that if lawmakers want to avoid that, they should send him a state budget with at least $1.8 billion in tax cuts, as well as $2 billion in funding for roads and water infrastructure.
The governor, in office since 2000, plans to announce whether he'll seek a fourth full term after the legislative session. He also hasn't ruled out another run for president in 2016, despite his unsuccessful 2012 bid.
