TREMONT – What is Tremont doing about the drug problem in the borough?
Council woman Paulette Yuschock asked fellow council members, Mayor Roger Adams and Police Chief Michael Conway during council’s meeting held Tuesday, June 14.
“My eyes have really been opened in the last few weeks,” said Yuschock. “There is a big problem and I want to know what we are doing on the war on drugs in our community.”
According to Mayor Adams, syringes have been found laying around several places in the borough. He said he doesn’t know what the answer is to combat the problem.
Police Chief Michael Conway said there are ongoing investigations and if people see or know something they are encouraged to contact the police.
