I see daily the issues that continue to affect our businesses, our safety and our wellbeing in certain areas of the city. It is not enough to just feed and provide clothing and blankets for the homelessness. Every day our police department and fire department deal with drug overdoses, breaking and entering, petty theft and issues too gross to print in a newspaper.
I hope the Arvada City Council and the Arvada Chamber of Commerce can be successful in resolving the issues impacting our city caused by drug addiction that prevents people from jobs, homes and successful living so that the emergency responders can stop being nursemaids to addicts and get the crime rate down.
Lorraine Anderson, Arvada
