Borough still facing drug problems

April 22, 2014

During the regular meeting of the Ridgway Borough Council held Monday evening, council heard from another group of citizens concerning drug use throughout the borough.
"We are all concerned about the drug issues in town and we've collectively come up with some questions," said Ridgway resident Stevie Gustafson. "We would just like them addressed and answered and maybe give us some feedback on what we can do."
Gustafson reported that the questions offered to the borough were on behalf of a Facebook group who have been expressing online their shared concerns.
Among the questions asked were those regarding syringes and police procedure with those found and turned in, how citizens can increase their involvement in helping with drug issues, and search warrant and probable cause procedures.
"The mayor is in charge of the police department and law enforcement," said council president Ralph Dussia, indicating that a copy of the questions would be passed on to Ralph Tettis, Ridgway Borough police chief, who could then meet with Gustafson and others in attendance in order to better address the questions presented to council.
