It is important to note that the delay in the decals is not a current problem for residents, because there is a grace period until April 30.

Many people are out without shelter. It was miserable to start with but with this things are only going to get worse.

The Parks Department is listening. There is some good dialogue going on. Whatever happens is just icing on the cake for me. The big thing was getting the park.

What the tribes are dealing with, it's not a pretty picture. One of the things we want to do is support [the police] and try to bring about the unmet needs that these tribal law enforcement deserve and should have, since they're on the front lines standing in harm's way day in and day out; and we owe them as much to have all the resources they need to do their jobs.

Given the numbers we're trying to reach and the scale of the commodities we are trying to move, we need a functioning road network and trucks on the road 24 hours a day.

This means that residents currently using the collection centers without a decal should not have any problems with access until May 1. All of our collection center guards have been trained on the new decal policy, and they have written materials to provide residents, so we hope that center customers will understand that they are not under an immediate deadline to get their decal.

Pushing out from here is going to prove problematic for some time.
