On Tuesday concerned citizens gathered together for a meeting about the Dauphin jail closure.

The group has created a committee designed to fight the closure until a new facility is built.

In their first meeting, they discussed plans to provide information around the community.

Committee member Larry Budzinski says that the group has plans to attend more rallies.

“We’re looking at a campaign to develop some signage. There’s talk about supporting the major rally that’s scheduled for March 5th in Winnipeg. We’re talking about providing information in the Marketplace Mall. We want to encourage people to continue to write and express their concerns.  We just want to keep this alive because we think it’s a terrible decision, it has terrible ramifications in the community.”

He adds that anyone interested in becoming involved can contact any of the committee members.
