The Taylor County community is fighting for change, despite their lack of funds. A meeting Tuesday night gave residents a chance to put their issues on the table.

Many residents are unhappy with the lack of programs and activities for youth, saying it leads some teens to a life of crime. Other complaints involved code enforcement issues. With that, local leaders are asking for the community to come together to combat the many problems facing their area.

"Council members and the commissioners can add these concerns to their list of things so they can look at those and find out avenues for change for this community to positively impact residents' daily lives." said Jamie Cruse with the Perry Police Department.

The City of Perry and Taylor County plan to continue community discussions to keep working on key challenges on the road ahead.

    It's true that there's not a lot for youth to do here. But go to a big city, and you'll find kids there saying the exact same thing.
