Residents of Silver Heights came before the Silver City Town Council at its Tuesday, May 22 meeting to voice their concerns over drug activity and drug-related robberies in their neighborhood.
One resident stated the neighborhood had a recent robbery and she was there to talk about crime and the drug problems in their neighborhood. She stated she had lived there for about 21 years and there has always been a drug house within four blocks. They have had meetings with the police and she said they get the same answers – it takes a long time, put bars on your windows, get alarms, or develop a community watch group. The first three, she said, just means we are giving up, and the last is next to impossible to do as many residents are older single ladies who don’t feel comfortable doing that and others work and can’t be up all night patrolling.
At Gila Regional Medical Center's EMS facility, on Tuesday, May 22, 2018, Air Methods' local Native Air #32 recognized emergency medical services personnel by hosting a luncheon for them. A spokeswoman said, volunteer fire department personnel had also been invited, but were fighting a house fire in Hanover.

Most of the bi-monthly meeting of the Grant County Community Health Council was a discussion on how to continue the organization when its funding is likely to be depleted late this calendar year.
The members of the health council are in the midst of handing out assessments to community members throughout the county to be filled out to get a new data set of community needs. A minimum of 400 is required to get a reliable sample, but members are aiming much higher than that.
