Letter | Good work, City Council, for addressing teen drinking

We want to extend our compliments to our current mayor and City Council members. On Sept. 19 they were presented with the new Social Host Ordinance. This ordinance would fine parents if minors were found in their home drinking alcohol, and the police were already present administering the criminal law. As you can imagine, this was a very difficult topic. Our government team was exceptionally diligent in addressing questions about the new law. They patiently and thoroughly worked through concerns and community issues. We can all be proud of their efforts. Thank you!

Alana Morris and Diane Larson
