Students, Community Work To Bring Shelter to Code

An ongoing local story: Rancher allows homeless to set up a safe-camp for sober-living on his ranch.  County says, this is illegal, property not to code, etc. Rancher says, I'm doing my best and these people are off of your streets. Courts say, do something and bring property to code.

Thirty-six college students, from the university's industrial engineering department volunteer to tackle the dilemma .  "They spent their weekends coordinating improvement to electrical and plumbing systems...a checklist of work about a page-and-a-half," the groups professor told the local newspaper.
