East Columbus invited to neighborhood discussion tonight

The city of Columbus will be holding a meeting for east side residents, tonight at City Hall.

Mayor Jim Lienhoop, Columbus Police Chief Jon Rohde, members of City Council and city staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss issues.

One of the major topics will be resident’s concerns over the Brighter Days homeless shelter. The shelter, operated by Love Chapel and the Columbus Township Trustee’s office, has drawn some concerns over increased crime and drug use in the neighborhood.

That meeting will start at 6 in the Cal Brand meeting room at City Hall.
