JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - If you live or work in Jackson, you have an opportunity to discuss concerns you may have about the violence that plagues the city.

A community meeting is slated for April 22 at the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Museum, which will begin at 6 p.m.

Councilman Ashby Foote is hosting the meeting tonight where violence and crime will be the topics of conversation.

Specifically, M-Bar nightclub will be discussed following three murders that have occurred within the last year.

He is also considering raising the age limit and shortening hours on certain nights during the week.

The meeting will end at 7 p.m., and all are urged to attend.
