Manteca’s homeless warming center this winter will cost taxpayers significantly more than last year.
The City Council when they meet today at 5 o’clock will decide between two options for a homeless warming center. One is a 40-foot by 80-foot tent option for $180,000. The other is a 48-foot by 60-foot modular options for $225,000.
Last winter the city in partnership with Inner City Action opened a warming center with the city setting aside $25,000 to run generators to heat the tent.
