LOCKPORT – The crackdown on crime and code violations in the Washburn-Genesee street area will be the subject of a public meeting set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Refuge Temple, 15 Cottage St.

To try to explain the program to the neighborhood, police-community liaison and pastor Mark Sanders set up the meeting between police and the community.

Police Chief Lawrence M. Eggert predicted that the “impact zone” program ordered by Mayor Michael W. Tucker would begin to generate complaints about harassment unless its purpose was explained to those affected.
