Ormond Beach Update on Homelessness

Rod Butler, City Manager (805) 986-6503 CITY COUNCIL TO RECEIVE AN UPDATE ON ORMOND BEACH, THE HOMELESS SITUATION, AND EFFORTS TO PROTECT THE CITY OF PORT HUENEME RESIDENTS AT THE SEPTEMBER 3, 2019 CITY COUNCIL MEETING (PORT HUENEME, CA)

The City of Port Hueneme, Port Hueneme Police Department and the City Council have been actively taking steps to ensure the safety of all Port Hueneme residents in response to the transient issues directly associated with the Ormond Beach encampments and vagrancy issues that impact our city. The Port Hueneme Police Department, at the direction of City Manager Rod Butler and Chief of Police Andrew Salinas, has begun aggressively patrolling Hueneme Beach, has authorized additional patrols of the area day and night, and now has a dedicated officer who will be located there for the next several weeks to be immediately available to address transient issues.

As the City of Oxnard begins the difficult process of evicting the transients in the near future, the City of Port Hueneme has offered its resources and assistance; including allocation of police officers and volunteers, lending of heavy equipment, additional supply of refuse containers, and eventually, a coordinated community beach clean-up day. Police Chief Salinas would like the residents of Port Hueneme to know that his department will continue its efforts to keep our City clear of transients and address vagrancy issues, as protecting our residents is the Police Department’s first priority. Furthermore, the City Council will be provided an in-depth update on the progress and planned steps to be taken to clean-up Ormond Beach at their meeting of September 3, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber.

Residents and community members are strongly encouraged to attend in person, watch the live Council meeting on the City’s website, or submit written comments prior to the meeting.
