Public Works Report continued:

not yet.

District will be disbanning.

Kim Olson from W3116 Hardscrabble Road spoke regarding the heroin
problem that seems to be plaguing Palmyra.  She wants to get the word
out to parents and the community that Palmyra has a heroin problem and
young people are dying and overdosing from it.  She said that she
contacted Jefferson County drug task force and the Palmyra Police
Dept. and was very disappointed that all she got were a few pamphlets
on drugs.  She also said that she has called and left 3 messages for
the Palmyra Eagle High School principal and he has yet to return her
call. She asked the board what she could do to get the word out?  They
said that she should contact the school board, contact an Alcoholics
Anonymous program and they might be able to get her in touch with
someone regarding the drug aspect.  Clerk Mueller said that Arrowhead
High School recently had a public informational meeting to educate
parents about drug abuse, maybe Olson could call that school and get
some information.
