Survey Results (Roxanne Schreder)
Meeting Logistics Survey
A survey was sent out to make sure the current meeting date/time/location still works, and it does. No meeting in July.
Prescription Drug Disposal Survey
Sent out a survey to all Sherburne County pharmacies to see if they would continue to provide info on our prescription drop boxes. Five retailers responded and four advised they would like to have something to give out.
Discussion was had on ordering more disposal site magnets and including Princeton’s location (1000 magnets was $384 last time). Rox will have Alicia send out a volunteer request for members to approach their pharmacies.
The survey also asked about putting up permanent signage. Rox asked members to provide suggestions about how it would work in the pharmacies they go to. Melissa commented that many do not have wall space to display a poster.
Angie suggested including an educational piece about why it is important to dispose of the drugs properly.
Melissa also suggested asking healthcare providers to put posters in the patient exam rooms.
County Compliance Check Policy
Roxanne advised the county has not updated the ordinance process for many years, but they are now in the process of doing so. Jennifer advised that the County Attorney’s Office, HHS, and the Sheriff’s Office are working together. Currently, there are no clear consequences or guidelines for non-compliance.
Angie commented on how Edina is working to raise the age for tobacco sales to 21.
Dan advised four liquor stores have committed to Sticker Shock – Briggs, Beck’s Pub, SAFE Discount Liquor, and Uptown Liquor.
Three liquor stores in Becker have declined.
Melissa advised Frontier Liquor manger sounded interested and she asked if Alicia could follow-up with the owner.
Westbound Liquor confirmed participation and asked for Northbound to be done at the same time.
Amber advised a follow-up should be done at Lake Liquors as they also sounded interested.
Deadline for commitment is April 21. Dan and Alicia will work to coordinate dates and volunteers.
Dan volunteered to approach Sand Dunes Spirits.
Newspaper ads will be published to thank participating businesses.
Each business will be presented with a framed certificate as well. Suggestion was made that the certificate should explain what was accomplished and how many years they have participated.
Thank you card as well.
SUP Strategic Plan
The Executive Board met and reviewed proposed changes to the Strategic Plan.
Note: The Strategic Plan addresses our target substances with long-term, intermediate, and short-term objectives to ensure we are making an impact on youth substance use in our community.
Rox handed out the revised plan to all members. Discussion was had about the future focus for the coalition. Concerns about marijuana were mentioned due to recent incidents on social media. The coalition and Big Lake Police Department’s Facebook pages have received numerous negative comments on the misperceptions of marijuana video. Will need to work on obtaining community support through education and awareness.
Sheriff Brott recommended presenting the Annual Report to the County Board. He will look into the May 2 meeting. Coalition members are welcome to attend. There are three new board members this year. Angie suggested doing the city council meetings as well. Baldwin Township advised they would like an update – possibly at a quarterly township association meeting this fall.
April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month. Rox thanked all of the volunteers on the coalition. Two prizes were given out to coalition members as a thank you.
Meeting was adjourned at 10:15 a.m.
Next Meeting: Wednesday, May 17th at 9:00 a.m. in the Sheriff’s Office Emergency Operations Center.
