Safe spot for ‘child exchanges’ considered

By Sara Seidel/Richmond News Editor

When divorced parents share visitation privileges of their children, those parents sometimes need to find a safe place to make the exchange.

A new place to do so is in the works for downtown Richmond.

At its meeting April 12, the city council approved a tentative plan to set aside two parking spaces in front of the Ray County 911 building on West North Main Street solely for use by parents trading custody of their children.

A camera is in place to record activity at the location, and the building is continuously staffed, according to Public Safety Committee chairman Dave Powell, who proposed the idea. That makes the spot suitable for transfers.

The complete story is in the Tuesday, April 19, 2016 Richmond News.
