Akerman announced that "as a compassionate community, we will be seeking housing alternatives for the people of tent city."
While some may be skeptical whether those living in the woods would be cooperative, his message was clear to all. He is not turning a blind eye on the homeless issue like some of our previous Mayors have.
So now we finally have a Mayor that understands what needs to be done. Perhaps his insight and understanding will help erase the tarnished image that our previous Mayors have brought on our town. We look forward to seeing what his positive insight will bring to all the other issues facing our town as well.
