LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - The city of Lebanon, New Hampshire, plans to discuss creating a homeless task force after city officials dropped a proposal last month that would’ve made it unlawful for homeless people to live in a city-owned lot on state Route 12A.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/29fwFz5 ) the City Council plans to take up the task force - dubbed The Coalition to End Homelessness - Wednesday evening.

The group would consist of council members, city staffers, homeless representatives, nonprofit agencies and officials from surrounding towns.

Under the proposal, the public could provide feedback during at least two public forums. The group would be expected to produce a report in the fall.

Officials with the Silent Warriors group say the task force would provide stakeholders a window into the challenges homeless people face.
