“I was glad to see residents, elected officials, community leaders, partners and City team members attend the community meeting held last week. I heard many concerns from residents and have been addressing them with our police department. I look forward to further strategy sessions and identifying resources for our community. I encourage our community members to share their ideas and get involved as we continue to implement this much needed change. No one person can resolve this complex issue. This will take the effort of our village,” said Mayor Wells-Armstrong.
