YAKIMA Wa. -- The temporary homeless encampment Camp Hope may now be able to get running water.

During today’s business meeting councilmembers authorized a contract with Yakima Valley Conference of Governments to accept up to $238,000 of funding.

According to the city, the money will be used to extend public water and sewer to the city owned property where Camp Hope is located.

The first contract is for $100,000 and will allow engineering plans and project estimates to take place.

Another contract will be presented to City Council in the future for construction procedures to begin.
