The ongoing problem with people living on the streets here in The Pas was brought up at Monday night’s committee of the whole meeting.
Vagrants have been a major problem in the community for a long time causing mischief in and around businesses in the downtown area, getting intoxicated in public and even getting into fights.
These issues have discouraged some people from opening businesses downtown.
To solve this problem, Mayor Herb Jacques says he would like to put together a small committee of concerned community organizations to see if they can come up with a solution.
The next step is to touch base with community groups and get them on board.
