South Memphis Residents Join Commissioner Mickell Lowery To Discuss Issues In Their Neighborhood

MEMPHIS, Tenn (localmemphis.com) - Dozens of South Memphis residents attended a public town hall meeting to discuss issues in their neighborhood Saturday. 


The meeting was hosted by Shelby County Commissioner Mickell Lowery.  It's been more than 100 days since the first county commissioner meeting and Lowery and his team passed out flyers highlighting programs and progress that's been made since he took office. 


"Making sure that we're doing something about blight in this neighborhood, to make sure we're doing something about vacant buildings as well as vacant school buildings that are in the area, what are our plans for that.  People in this community also really want to be informed with what we're doing with the juvenile court system and as well as the plans we have for development," Lowery explained. 


Mayor Lee Harris, representatives from code enforcement, Shelby County School Board and the Shelby County Sheriff's Department were also there to answer any questions.
