MONROE - A recent housing study by land planning and community development company Vierbicher Associates Inc. on behalf of the City of Monroe found almost 40 percent of the respondents knew someone who may be in danger of becoming, or currently is, homeless. Dan Lindstrom, planning and community development manager at Vierbicher, said the total income respondents reported to have used to pay household expenses explains the 38 percent of people who said they know someone who may be dealing with tightened finances. "Twenty-eight respondents said they had someone living with them who had no permanent place to live," Lindstrom said.
