Citing health hazards, zoning code violations and more than $43,000 in unpaid utility bills, the city of Oxnard on Wednesday shut off water and effectively closed Ventura County's only year-round shelter for the homeless. Zoe Christian Center officials decried the action as part of a city crusade to thwart their efforts to help the homeless.
