The City Council last week gave a cold shoulder to a proposal from a firm that wants to erect bus-stop shelters in the city. Bus Shelters of California had asked the council to permit it to erect the shelters and sell advertising on them. But the council voted 3 to 1 to table the proposal, which would require an amendment to the city's zoning code to allow advertising on public streets.

December 2, 1991 | NAN P. ROMAN, vice president of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, a Washington-based group, commented on the use of National Guard armories as temporary shelters for the homeless. She told The Times:
Gov. Pete Wilson's agreement to open the National Guard armories as 90-day shelters for California's homeless people is a laudable one, but residents of the state should not expect to see any real impact on the number of homeless people because of it. Emergency shelter is not a solution to homelessness. The governor's action is a victory not only for homeless people, but for the nonprofit, public- and private-sector groups that have long advocated the move.

Retail gasoline prices in California had already declined in the last few days. The state's average fell to $4.253 a gallon Thursday, down 2 cents in the last week, according to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, which uses data from service stations.

The City Council has terminated its contracts with a firm that provides bus shelters for failing to make more than $44,000 in monthly payments to the city.
