I have no problem with providing a place for people to hang out and find shelter but I do believe our children should have a secure and safe place to wait for the school bus.
I have noticed a change for the better since the benches were removed. The only people you see at the bus stop now are those actually waiting for the bus. I feel much better about my wife and children waiting there now.
I do sympathize with those that are homeless especially this time of year, but my first concern is with the school children that have to use that location.
