Commission Releases Results on COMBAT

By Steve Bell

Kansas City, MO – Jackson County's COMBAT anti-drug program is getting results, but needs a larger controlling commission with representatives from all parts of the county, an appointed director and better communication with the public. That's the finding of an advisory committee in a report delivered to the county yesterday. County Executive Mike Sanders says the commission's results are a starting point for public comment.

Mike Sanders: "We're going to put these recommendations on the county's web site, it'll be open for additional public comment. We'll be mailing and placing this committee report at libraries throughout the area. What we want is we want more public input on the document, since this is a draft."

Sanders says a finalized version of the recommendations will be implemented in January.
