St. Lawrence Council meeting with RCMP
Council hopes to address a variety of concerns
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.
