The Lexington chapter of the NAACP and the city are sponsoring a town meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday to discuss public safety.
According to a news release from the city, the meeting will provide an opportunity to learn more about public safety and for citizens to discuss how they can work together to make the community a better place to live.
The meeting will be at Winburn Middle School, 1060 Winburn Drive.
