Public Safety Committee holds Westwood Town Hall meeting

WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati City Council's Public Safety Committee held a special meeting in Westwood Tuesday evening.

It was held as a Public Safety Neighborhood Forum at Westwood Town Hall, where residents were able to sound off about shared services, response times and staffing levels.

"Please consider transferring the city 911 to the county, Hamilton County, where you can save money, and their operators and dispatchers are more efficient and professional," Westwood resident Sharon Lewis told the committee.

Another resident, Ron Rothus, spoke about response times for emergency personnel.

"Burglary reports have gone six hours without being dispatched," said Rothus. "...Auto accidents three hours without being dispatched."

Members of the committee, Wendell Young, Yvette Simpson, Chris Seelbach, P.G. Sittenfeld, Christopher Smitherman and Pamula Thomas, were then able to consider and potentially begin to take action on any items discussed.

The next Public Safety Neighborhood Forum is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25 at 6 p.m. It will take places at the Madisonville Recreation Center on Stewart Road.
