(Portland, OR) -- Portland will spend more to address the problem of homelessness. A new budget approved yesterday by the city council will send 26-and-a-half million dollars to the Joint Office of Homeless Services. That's one-point-four million dollars more than was in the original budget proposal. Much of the extra money will come from unspent funds from the current fiscal year. The increase follows a spat over how much Portland and Multnomah County should each be contributing to the office.
