SF Public Utilities Commission examines charging property owners a new “storm-water fee” to help repair the sewer system.  Vacant lot owners are first on the list for the new fees.

The newly opened lockdown mental health facility at St. Mary’s is riding on hope for changes to the state conservatorship laws to make it easier to put homeless suffering from mental health into long-term treatment.  Others argue that lockdown centers are not the answer and more funding for community mental health services is needed.
