Bolivar City Council holds meeting regarding shootings

Bolivar City Council held a special called meeting on Monday, November 23, to address the multiple shootings and 911 'shots fired' calls the city has been receiving in the last few months. Although some residents expressed their concern and called for cooperation and partnership between law enforcement agencies, citizens, and government leaders, others expressed their disappointment regarding the lack of attendance to the meeting by citizens. Approximately 20 individuals, outside council members, were present at the meeting and approximately two thirds of those in attendance were law enforcement officials.
