COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus' mayor was joined by a few special guests Thursday night as she personally addressed concerns of Fountain City residents.

Columbus Police Chief Ricky Boren and D.A. Julia Slater joined Mayor Teresa Tomlinson during the "Let's Talk!...with the Mayor" forum hosted by Britt David Elementary.

The three city leaders answered question directly from Columbus citizens. 

Among the topics discussed were Animal Control, new garbage trucks, youth crime and crime prevention, along with the controversial “Thaw the Freeze” proposal. 

“I think it was typical but also reflected some of the budget issues that we see going on in this city,” said Mayor Teresa Tomlinson. “The people are concerned as they're reading about it in the media and they just want to hear more.” 

The next "Let's Talk!...with the Mayor" forum will be held June 16 at St. James AME Church.
