EUGENE, Ore. -- Some Bethel area residents are struggling to find a solution to the homeless people living on their properties.
For three months, resident Brenda Shearer dealt with a homeless man refusing to move his RV off of her driveway. Shearer said she originally met him at her church and offered to let him park his car on her driveway for a few days. But a few days turned into a few weeks and a car turned into an RV.
And Schearer is not alone.
Her neighbor, Mike Carr, said he is dealing with homeless living in the bushes outside of his fence and has tried to get help from the police, but the problem continues.
"We need to get this sanctuary state straightened out and get our city cleaned back up. We don't want to be like Seattle or San Francisco or Portland with all the garbage and homeless people camping out like there's no tomorrow," Carr said.
