Rio Dell City officials are making a clarification on a syringe exchange program. At a meeting this week,
Councilmember Sue Strahan called for an item to be placed on the agenda to discuss syringe exchanges and provide further direction to staff on the topic, if the Council so desired.
At no time was a syringe exchange program requested by the City Council. To the best of our knowledge, no syringe exchange program is currently proposed for Rio Dell and any group desiring to start one is required under state law to notify the Chief of Police prior to operating an exchange.
By majority, the Council also clarified that it was not in favor of a syringe exchange program in Rio Dell.
