Supervisors Joel Anderson and Jim Desmond joined board members in unanimously supporting the new department, but both said they had issues with restricting enforcement of homeless activities in parks.

Anderson noted that Lamont Park in Spring Valley, which is in the East County district he represents, had at times been so impacted by homeless activity that families were staying away.

“That’s wrong,” he said. “We have to do better.”
