Almost 200 people turned out to visit with the different agencies set up under tents lining Market Street. The sheriff’s tent, where Deputy Joe Trejo was sitting with Community Relations Sgt. Gregg Lewison, was a popular stop, especially for Spanish-speaking residents. Trejo maintains a regular office in the nearby Community Center.
