Senator James C. Moylan will be holding a community forum on public safety this Monday, Nov. 4, at the Yigo Senior Citizens Center.

According to the senator, this is scheduled to be the first of several village town halls to discuss various bills and issues associated with public safety.

The community forum is being done in coordination with Yigo Mayor Rudy Matanane and the Yigo Mayor’s Office.

Moylan said this will be an opportunity for the community to express their thoughts on legislation and make recommendations on other means to keep their neighborhoods safe.

“Public safety is a priority of our office, and because we are facing challenges getting public hearings scheduled on many of our bills, we are bringing our bills to the public to hear their voices,” Moylan said in a release.

He added: “We encourage the community to continue to be loud, and express, rather demand, that the government focus on pressing issues such as keeping our streets safe and addressing this drug epidemic, versus veering away towards less critical matters, and these forums would be an ideal opportunity for them to share their thoughts.”

The forum will begin at 6:00 p.m.
