Citizens group formed to help fight crime in Batavia

A Batavia resident has set up a Facebook group and scheduled a meeting aimed at fighting crime in the city.

The Batavia Neighborhood Watch group already has 95 members.

It was set up by Michael Hough, who wrote in his first post:

There is no doubt that crime is on the rise in Batavia. This group is intended to bring the community together to deal with the issues, and to serve as a liaison between citizens and law enforcement officers.

He's calling for a meeting of concerned citizens 5 p.m., Jan. 25, at Tim Horton's.

Hopefully it can help.... I joined as well. Can't rightly complain about anything without at least making an effort to be part of a possible solution.

I'm thinking they are going to need a bigger venue.

I joined this group immediately after reading this post because I thought, “what a great idea”. This morning I found, according to his Facebook, Mr. Hough does not live in Genesee County. Curious! I hope it’s sincere.

Mike has clearly outlined rules for the group, and he also addressed the fact that he doesn't live in the city and why he formed the group, regardless.
