IOWA CITY (AP) -

Iowa City officials say a temporary winter homeless shelter has been regularly operating above capacity as its planned closing date draws near. The shelter had been scheduled to close at the end of February. Officials say they're considering pushing back its close date since it exceeds capacity on a nightly basis. The shelter, opened last month in a former grocery store.
