City Again Works to Hurt Downtown Rescue Mission
As I have written previously the city of Huntsville is trying to get the Downtown Rescue Mission to move so they can build a road. Basically there is nothing the Mission can do about not moving. I think they will be hard put to find as good a location as they already had as they near to be "downtown" near the city center, and the other options they have discussed are farther away. It is not like the homeless have transportation. Now, according to this article, the city is negotiating a price to buy the Mission and one of our fine city councilors is upset at how high the price is. So not only are they being forced to move, but the city is trying to pay a less then appraised price.
