Mr. Sims discussed and answered questions about the budget for the City Attorney’s office and the possible elimination of the two precinct liaison positions. Members of the Gang Unit discussed gang activity in the area and answered questions from concerned residents.
After the precinct update, community concerns were discussed and members of the Colman Neighborhood Association and members of the Autonomia center both mentioned needing to work with outside facilitators to to get a productive dialogue going between the two groups.
