According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the city is considering a two-year, $140,000 contract with Life Link. The contract would put homeless people and panhandlers to work by clearing litter and weeds. 

Mayor Alan Weber said the proposal is a way to help resolve several issues in the city all at once. 

The proposed plan has already passed two city council committees.

Albuquerque has had a similar program since 2015, which has employed hundreds of people who are homeless
