Agenda for Community Drug Forum set in Mayvillle...


Confirmation that Fentanyl is in the Jamestown-area is putting even more onus on the upcoming Community Drug Forum that's set for next Wednesday in Mayville.  County Executive Vince Horrigan says the agenda has now been set... with expert presenters in the morning... and, a large panel discussion later in the day.  Horrigan says the forum runs from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Chautauqua Suites.  He says the presenters will include a well-known parent and advocate Avi Israel... who lost his son to addiction several years ago.  Horrigan says the panel will be large in number... but, adds it's because "we've got a large problem."  He says it's disturbing to hear that there were three reported overdoses reported one day last weekend in the city of Jamestown.  He says recovering addicts... and, victims of drug abuse have also been invited to take part in the forum.  Horrigan says he wants it to be an "open up the conversation" because that's how to get to the root problem, and can find solutions.  He says the panel will include law enforcement officials... Family Court officials and others.  For more information on the forum... call 753-4507.
