Homeless men file civil rights lawsuit against the City of Manteca


One year after passing a tough anti-homeless ordinance, the City of Manteca now faces a lawsuit filed by 4 homeless men who claim their civil rights are being violated.

"I've been here since 1981 and I'm here to make sure the chief of police gets the message, he's not going to run me off," said Robert Schuknecht, one of the plaintiffs.

The lawsuit claims the city has "criminalized their ( homeless ) very status. It also claims homeless people in Manteca are told to go to Stockton and " Manteca is not the place for you."

In 2014 Manteca passed an ordinance that makes it illegal for homeless people to sleep in camps on public or private property. Police Chief Nick Obligacion is the city spokesperson on the homeless issue.

Ripon using water conservation patrol to help reach goals

First, they came close at 34 percent. A month later it was at 32 and then 31 percent. Now, the city is trying to help put those numbers in the right direction by using a water conservation car to patrol the area. City employees keep logs of violations and leave notices.

"In addition to notifying residents of water violations, I'm also marking faulty sprinklers," Ripon Water Conservation Coordinator Ben Isganitis said.
