Biskupski and Hughes Video on GACC Facebook Page

11 November 2017

At the November community meeting, in addition to our normal reports, we also received an update on Operation Rio Grande and the state of homelessness in Salt Lake City from Rep. Greg Hughes, Speaker of the Utah State House of Representatives, and Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski. The Speaker, the Mayor, and Police Chief Mike Brown answered questions about Operation Rio Grande, new homeless resource centers, the closing of the downtown shelter operated by the Road Home, the number of substance abuse rehabilitation beds available now and planned in the next six months, and other topics of concern.  The  meeting was captured on Facebook live and the video from that meeting can be accessed at, or go to the Greater Avenues Community Council Facebook page The Mayor's comments start at about the 22:00 minute mark.
