Mem­bers of the St. Lawrence town coun­cil are hop­ing to ar­range a meeting with the Burin Penin­sula RCMP to dis­cuss a num­ber of grow­ing con­cerns in the com­mu­nity.

Dur­ing a reg­u­lar meeting of coun­cil held Tues­day, Oct. 23 Mayor Paul Pike told coun­cil he had been speak­ing with Staff Sgt. Dale Foote to re­quest a meeting with him.

A dis­cus­sion was held re­gard­ing is­sues that should be on the agenda for such meeting, in­clud­ing reck­less use of bike and quads in the town and po­lice vis­i­bil­ity, “We need (an) in­creased pres­ence in the town,” Pike noted.

He added res­i­dents are con­cerned that of­fi­cers cur­rently re­sid­ing in town will move.

“If they do move than we have no one in the area and hav­ing them liv­ing here seems to be a com­fort for a lot of peo­ple,” Pike said.

The South­ern Gazette fol­lowed up with The Town of St. Lawrence to see if they had re­ceived con­fir­ma­tion from the RCMP on a date and time for the meeting but as of Thurs­day, Oct. 25 no de­tails had been ar­ranged.
