A North State activist is trying to gather support to help clean up her city.

Pat Johnston is feed up with going on underneath Red Bluff’s bridges. So she started the watchdog group the Tehama County Action Team in an attempt to bring the issue to light.

Johnston’s biggest concern is the trash, drugs, crime and illegal homeless housing under these bridges. She also says it’s bad for the environment because when it rains all the waste washes into the Sacramento River.

“In this situation the homeless is in all of our backyards; it’s in our front yards,” Johnston said. “It’s destroying the fabric of what Red Bluff is.”

The Tehama County Board of Supervisors said Red Bluff, “Obviously has a homeless problem.”

They’ve already hosted two community meetings about this issue and will have a third in August.

As for Johnston, she will bring this issue up at Tuesday’s Red Bluff City Council meeting.
