The tent city on East Welakahao Road is an embarassment for everyone who loves our island. Some of these people are ill and cannot care for themselves. Why cannot the county do something to mitigate this situation? There must be services that would address their homelessness/hunger/illness/need for shelter.
The site is dirty, unbelievably hot and attracts drug dealing. It should be cleaned up as quickly as possible. There are no sanitary facilities. I hear children crying (sometimes screaming) at night.
The vehicles there may or may not be in running condition, but do accommodate people who sleep there. Where do you think they relieve themselves? Isn't this a sanitary-condition violation of county laws?
