SARASOTA, Fla. -- City and county leaders in Sarasota sat down Monday to discuss the so-called "come as you are" homeless shelter.

The proposed shelter would bring people off the streets and into a monitored place with case management.


But some residents and city officials question whether the shelter would be effective, and are concerned about the impact a shelter would have on surrounding neighborhoods. And during the meeting the community gave officials an earful.
