Joe Warshawsky is running for a councillor position in the City of Fernie.

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

A: This ongoing problem has been present as long as fernie has been recognized as a party town! Council had initiated and created better street lighting downtown. Our regional police force requested a nuisance bylaw to support them, and we implemented the bylaw!  We felt that video surveillance was the answer, the public did not! We probably need more of a police presence and a local holding area.  Many local business owners need to have video surveillance outside to charge individuals who are willing to damage their premises.
