Mayor Jack Everson is urging east-end residents of the City of Chillicothe to attend a community meeting as part of Operation Stand-Up. The meeting will be at the City Transit Conference Room June 25th from 6-8pm.

Mayor Everson says says the third phase of the area crackdown on drug trafficking and other crimes includes establishing neighborhood watches.

The mayor also stated that another area of the city is now in Phase One of Operation Stand-Up, but would not elaborate where at this time, due to the need to maintain covert status for criminal enforcement. More will be known about as the program unfolds.
