Birmingham City Council Backs Mayor Woodfin’s Homeless Shelter Plan

Birmingham City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved an agreement to purchase at least 50 micro-shelters for homeless residents and to seek proposals from organizations to provide services to address chronic homelessness.

However, some councilors had questions about the process of selecting service providers and how money would be spent.

Councilor Valerie Abbott asked if anyone could provide cost projections for what the city may have to invest into a selected proposal.
