Athens homeless problem persists
(2008-01-25)
(WOUB) - An area homeless shelter director wants to let the people of Athens know he needs help addressing the issue of homelessness.

Keith Wasserman runs the Timothy House on Athens' West Side.

And he says it's up to the city to do something about the growing homeless problem.

A proposed expansion of the Timothy House fell through when the operators were denied a zoning variance....and Wasserman is very frustrated.

We asked Mayor Paul Wiehl about possible remedies and he doesn't have any.

Wiehl also said that homelessness is not just Athens' problem.

Wiehl does acknowledge that something needs to be done.
