ST. CLOUD -- Some homeless residents who stay at the St. Cloud Salvation Army may be able to stay an extra 15 days under a plan before the city council tonight.

Salvation Army Major Steven Kohler says sometimes they need more time to help people become self sufficient.  He says oftentimes the paperwork takes longer to be reviewed and approved for these residents.

Kohler says the extension would be to 45 days for up to 10-percent of the residents there.

If approved, Kohler says it will make a big difference in getting people back on their feet and into permanent housing.
