St. Cloud City Council Delays Action On Length Of Stay Limits At Homeless Shelters

St. Cloud City HallST. CLOUD – The St. Cloud City Council tabled a decision on how long people can stay at the two temporary shelters in town.

Back in 2011 the council amended the city ordinance that would allow 10 percent of people staying at a shelter to live there an extra 45 days beyond the standard 45-day limit.  That amendment is set to sunset at the end of this month.

Anna Marie’s Alliance and The Salvation Army are the two facilities that run shelters.

The city council was concerned that there were no representatives at the meeting to lobby in favor of making the extended stays a permanent part of the ordinance.

Last month, the city council did approve allowing Anna Marie’s residents to stay past the 45-day limit, if they have a court-mandated protection order.

The council plans to revisit the issue at another council meeting later this month.
