A conflict between Kalamazoo and a group of homeless people has entered its third week.
Some people have been camping in downtown Bronson Park to protest the lack of shelter space and a long-term plan to help people find permanent housing.
The city tried to get them to move to two other places, but both were rejected, because of concerns about lack of safety or shade, among other reasons.
Jim Ritsema is Kalamazoo's city manager. He says the protesters are violating a city ordinance by staying overnight in a park.
