A large homeless camp on Workman Road has been cleared out by the motorcycle business formerly operated by Mayor Tim Kelly.
Mayor Kelly is no longer involved in the operation of his former businesses, city spokesperson Mary Beth Ikard said.
She said, “Southern Honda Power Sports paid a contractor to come in and help clear the property. The property realtor requested removal of the homeless encampment in order to close a sale on the property.”
Ikard said all those who were at the homeless camp “were offered access to hotel rooms but many unhoused individuals for whatever reason sometimes refuse.”
She said 45 people were living there and 28 accepted the offer of hotel housing and other services.
Ms. Ikard said the city’s Office of Homelessness and Supportive Housing helped to triage on the Workman Road location, but city Public Works was not involved.
