PUEBLO — Pueblo Mayor Nick Gradisar's office announced Monday that the Pueblo Transit Center has been approved as an overflow emergency warming shelter for Monday night.

Overnight temperatures are expected to reach single digits.

As of now, the center has only been approved as a shelter for Monday night.

The center will hold a maximum of 20 people, the Mayor's office said. Security will be on site from 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. Tuesday at the point of entry. No alcohol, drugs, or smoking inside will be allowed.

If an individual leaves the center, they will lose their spot if capacity is at a maximum.

The Mayor's Office said the Pueblo Rescue Mission has been notified of this change.
