Police Chief Tommy Wright said  the general overview of the summit is to bring these groups together to develop both a short- and long-term process in effectively dealing with the problems of drugs and alcohol within our community. The group will continue to meet over the next few months and, at some point in the future, will host a town hall-style meeting to gain the community’s perspective in helping fight the scourge of alcohol and drug abuse. The group’s goal is to develop goals to help link consumers with needed resources through collaboration between all service delivery and governmental groups. "This represents an exciting time in which the group sees the possibility of effectively combating the problem through community collaboration,” Wright said.
