A couple of things seemed to emerge from last month's Local Solutions to End Poverty Accountability Session: Duluth's lack of housing - and the cost of the housing there is - is becoming an issue for people of all income levels in the Northland.
 
One solution is the creation of an Affordable Housing Trust Fund ... but where is $3 million dollars a year going to come from?

One city councilor has a suggestion - but says you didn't hear it from him.
