Tennessee residents beg city for help dealing with homeless squatters: 'Something needs to be done' - Joggingvideo.com

Tennessee residents beg city for help dealing with homeless squatters: 'Something needs to be done'

Residents of a Middle Tennessee town are publicly demanding city officials take action as squatters and homeless encampments continue to wreak havoc with no end in sight.

“The trash they’re leaving for property owners, the waste that they’re leaving around everywhere,” Brittany McCann, a resident of Hermitage, Tennessee, just outside Nashville, told Fox 17 Nashville about squatters in makeshift homes and RVs in parking lots and streets. “Something needs to be done.”

McCann said one squatter set up an encampment with his dog in a parking lot in her neighborhood, prompting her to make calls to city leaders that finally resulted in him being removed from the property. But he soon set up a new camp nearby. 

McCann says the man has been removed from properties several times only to show up at another location nearby. 

“Somebody has got to get down here and check this out. I can’t believe this is happening right now in Hermitage. Well, now I can, five years ago I couldn’t.”

Fox 17 Nashville reported that the man wrote messages on his trailer alleging that residents were harassing him.  

HOUSTON WOMAN SAYS SQUATTERS CHANGED LOCKS, TOOK OVER HER HOME WITH A PHONY LEASE

“In general, I can tell you that if someone experiencing homelessness needs help – whether we first encounter them or they are referred to us – we always offer our support and make every effort to connect them to wraparound services and enroll them in Coordinated Entry, our housing pipeline,” the Nashville Metro Homeless Impact Division told Fox 17 Nashville in a statement. 

“We always partner with a couple of agencies who help care for and provide services for pets of our unhoused neighbors. Like many of us, our pets are our family and need love, attention and care also.”
