This Homeless Persons Ordinance Could Work In Rockford

There's a new ordinance in Little Rock, Arkansas that deserves deliberation in Rockford. According to a story shared by WIFR, this ordinance is two-part. It's an effective way to clean up litter and it gives a chance for homeless folks to get back on their feet. Yes, homeless people are being paid to pick up the Little Rock's "Bridge To Work" program.

$ 9.25 per hour, the minimum wage in Arkansas, to help pick up trash in the city.

The program received funding from Little Rock's Public Works Department, a local overseen the program, and there are two supervisors in charge. The workers make $ 9.25 an hour (Arkansas' minimum wage) and can work four hours a day, three days a week.

This is definitely a conversation within the city of Rockford.
