Palm Beach County code enforcement to rule on homeless tent fines today

From the article:

Palm Beach County officials have argued that the church is running a shelter illegally in a residentially zoned neighborhood. Further, it has charged at various times that the facility is a fire hazard, unsafe for housing up to 100 nightly.

The church has gone to battle in court on the zoning matter and lost, but the decision is under appeal. As for the safety hazards, the church has managed to stay one step ahead of being shut down through donations and last-ditch repairs and upgrades.
