Dennis Schafer Q & A

City of Fernie: Schafer, Dennis - Councillor Candidate. Dennis Schafer addresses disturbance issues in the downtown core

  • Oct. 29, 2014 11:00 a.m.

Q: If elected, how do you plan to address issues of late night disturbances and vandalism in the downtown core?

A: This is an ongoing issue that has received notable press coverage in the past year. I would continue to collaborate with businesses and residents of the downtown area and work with staff and council progressing the Good Neighbour Agreement that is laid out in the 2013 annual municipal report as a 2015 objective. It touches on a few good points, like a bar watch program, and late night transportation that will assist in dispersing patrons efficiently and safely after licensed establishments close.
