Parents Urge Commissioners to Reinstate After-School Program
Some residents in Southwest Alachua County say they haven't been able to go to Alachua County Commission meetings... so they wanted commissioners to come to them.
That's what happened last night...
Commissioners came to the library on tower road to hear residents' concerns... especially one in particular.
Parents say... they want their kids' after-school program reinstated.
The program, which was led by the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, was closed in October... and parents say they've been fighting ever since to get it back... and they'll continue to fight.
County officials addressed many problems in the Tower Road area, in addition to the after school program... like getting healthcare facilities and creating sidewalks and bike lanes along SW 24th Avenue.
