A Southern California city on Wednesday declared an emergency over a growing number of homeless people living on the streets, and especially along a popular riverbed trail.

The Anaheim City Council approved the measure unanimously after hearing three hours of public comments and discussing the issue for 90 minutes during a meeting that ran into the early morning, the Orange County Register ( ) reported.

More than a hundred people attended the meeting including city residents, homeless advocates, business owners and reporters.

"It's important that we realize this situation has gotten to a level that it is creating a crisis in our communities and that we cannot solely rely on the county to solve this problem," said Councilwoman Kris Murray, who introduced the resolution called Operation Home Safe. "We have got to be willing to take it to the next level."
