TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- The residents of the greater Frenchtown area and the Southside of Tallahassee met Saturday to continue dialogue about identifying concerns that affect the health and well-being of the community.

The meeting was held at the Richardson Lewis Building. Residents of both neighborhoods were invited to volunteer to serve as leaders to fill some open spots on the advisory council.

One member explained by why the council is important. 

Devon Marret said, "With this council that gives the opportunity for there to be a platform for people to express how they feel, express their concerns, and address things specifically that we would like to have more of a voice about. Hopefully not just have a voice but implement change after the voice has been projected."

The discussion answered questions about what residents can expect from their roles on the council.
