Three Spots left for Halloween Task Force

The City of Salida is seeking residents to serve on a task force that will discuss possible remedies and solutions for the abundance of trick-or-treaters seen on F Street during the Halloween evening. Residents of F Street have expressed concern in the past for the safety of trick-or-treaters as they move back and forth across F Street during the evening. Residents have also raised the issue that the throngs of trick-or-treaters present a burden to the residents in regards to the amount of candy they are buying to supply trick-or-treaters with each Halloween. Accordingly, the issues of safety and the burden to F Street residents will be discussed. The task force will meet no more than four times every other Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. starting August 13. The other meetings will be August 27 and September 10 and 24. After the four meetings the task force will present possible solutions to City Council at their meeting on Tuesday, October 7, 2014. Interested citizens should apply by sending an email to Jessica Lattanzio at by 5:00 p.m. Monday, July 28, 2014.
