Sheriff holding town hall in Edneyville on Thursday

EDNEYVILLE — Sheriff Charlie McDonald will host a town hall at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Edneyville Community Center for residents of Edneyville, Bat Cave and Gerton.

The Henderson County Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with the Sheriff's Office to bring important information to Edneyville and the northeastern portions of Henderson County.

“These community meetings give residents the opportunity to learn, ask questions and get to know the men and women who make up their Sheriff’s Office,” McDonald said in a news release. “We provide residents with information and tools that will help them contribute to their own safety. By going into different areas of the county, we are able to focus in on those specific areas’ crime statistics and concerns.”
