Redding citizens will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide solutions to public safety issues in a community forum to be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday. July 27. It will be held in the City Council Chambers at 777 Cypress Avenue.
Multiple opportunities for public participation will be available to interested citizens. Those attending in person can address the City Council and administrators in person with comments only, or ask questions and offer solutions for crime problems. The event will be live-streamed on the City’s web site at www.cityofredding.org (click on Meetings and Agendas).
A special email box also has been established for submission of comments and questions prior to the forum. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. All emails are due by 5 p.m. Monday, July 24, and will be provided to the City Council prior to the forum. Email questions will be addressed at the forum as time allows, however priority will be given to questions from those in attendance. Questions unanswered at the forum may be addressed in subsequent materials.
In addition to the City Council, Redding Police officials will attend, as well representatives of Shasta County public safety agencies. The forum will include background information on what the City has done, and is able to do, to combat crime, including a rundown on ordinances the City has enacted to protect the public.
