The BOCC has done NOTHING to relieve the Veterans homeless that are on the streets TODAY. If fact they made is worse. Amanda Ballard motion to re appropriate $1,500,000.00 of FEDERAL VETERAN FUNDING. It passed 7-0 so Veterans. Jason, Mike and County administrator Mr. Bishop was this the best use of FEDERAL ARP monies. This was the very last of the 15 million earmarked for Veterans. Other than the 6 million of FEDERAL monies to pay utilities for the DIRT for T2T NOTHING has been done for them to date. Shame on the BOCC

FOR THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY, WE COULD OF ELIMINATED ALL HOMELESS VETERANS IN MANATEE COUNTY

By the numbers, you say we have 80 homeless Veterans, A one bedroom /studio can be found for say $1500 a month. 80 x 1500 x 12 months = $720,000 times 2 years is 1.4 million.

For that we could get every homeless veteran off the streets into housing for 2 years until Tunnel to Towers is done and still have 7.5 million left over for wrap around services they might need.

So please tell me again how much this board supports our local homeless VETERANS. Taxpayers support our VETERANS. Your votes tell the truth

So how much LOCAL funds have been distributed. Show me the $$$$$
