4/25/03 - At 11 a.m. Monday Key
West City Manager Julio Avael and Key West Assistant City Manager John
Jones will hold a press conference concerning a new predicament relating
to the homeless situation in Key West. The shower/bathroom trailer has
arrived in Key West and was scheduled to be set up at Indigenous Park, but
the program manager for the Federal Lands to Parks Program has informed
the city it can not use any of the five parks considered for the trailer
or for temporary “safe zones” that had been planned.
The city is reevaluating the situation with
Key West City Commissioners and will have a statement regarding its
choices on Monday. Avael and Jones will then be available for questions.
