Beatty abstained from the vote.
Dear Deputy Mayor Nicole
The individuals who are taking advantage of drug free tents (unknown private property) invite unknown dangerous offenders and violence to our area.
We had dangerous individuals last winter enraged, with terrific strength and violent. We had a lot of damages. It was awful.
Our community really needs to be protected Nicole.
May God protect us.
