GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAU) - Green Bay city officials are asking a judge to impose penalties of up to 500 dollars per day on the St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter downtown.

The shelter at 411 St. John Street is run by the Catholic Diocese of Green Bay. Its administrators have been ordered to make a court appearance January 18th to face charges the shelter has violated its city permit by housing more people than allowed.

Mayor Jim Schmitt says the city has always supported homeless services and will continue to do so, but city leaders worry repeated violations of the occupancy limit at the shelter create safety problems and worry businesses and people living nearby.
