Meeting Held to Discuss St. Francois County Homeless Issue

(Farmington) A former church property would seem to be within the city limits of Farmington but it’s actually on property owned by St. Francois County.

The area described is an encampment for the homeless and is causing worry for neighboring homeowners.

Presiding County Commissioner Harold Gallaher brought together a variety of people for a meeting to discuss the topic.

The Jesus Worship Center off ‘H’ Highway in St. Francois County sits on seven acres of land which includes the “tent city” for the homeless.
