The City Council is hosting a workshop on resident concerns about crime Sept. 10, at 7 p.m. at 5919 Main St., New Port Richey.
Last week, a group of residents from the River Road area went to city leaders to complain about crime in their neighborhood and offer solutions on how to fight it.These solutions included suggestions to start a neighborhood watch and increase the police presence in the area.
At the forefront of the concerned residents last week was Dr. Donald Cadle, who was home last month when a bullet sped into their house on the Pithlachascotee River and lodged in the living room wall.
The council work session tonight is in response to the resident concerns about crime. City Council members are going to talk about citizen ideas and confer with Police Chief Kim Bogart about his suggestions on how to lessen crime. Residents will also get a chance to talk.
Got something to say about crime in the city and how to fight it? Go to the meeting at 7 p.m. at 5919 Main St., New Port Richey.
