Homeowners billed $20,000 to clean up former homeless camp in California

Homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area are furious at being charged $20,000 to clean up a former homeless camp in a Castro Valley ravine, KPIX reports.

Alameda County charged a homeowners’ association for the cleanup costs after belatedly realizing it was on the HOA’s property, KTVU reported. Now the association is billing each homeowner $300 to cover the fee for cleaning up San Lorenzo Creek

“There are no fences and such that would mark where the property line ended, so we were kind of hoping that it was someone else’s responsibility,” says Ed Walsh, owner of Walsh Property Management, which oversees the Lakewood Home Owners Association, KPIX reported.
