Town Hall Meeting
It was an emotional meeting last night in Vernon as City Councillors listened to concerns about crime, vagrancy, and the controversial overdose prevention site proposed for the city. There were about 150 people in attendance.
Councillors listened to stories from business owners and residents for about two and a half hours. There was a lot of discussion around addiction and mental health issues and separating the criminals from those who need help.
Facilitators will be provide a recording to council. It's hoped the report will be available for the June 24th meeting.
