The residents of Cossitt Place and surrounding area got to present their petition to Corner Brook city council at its public meeting Wednesday.

The neighbours claim the youth who live in a group home that opened on the street in early June have had a disruptive presence since moving into the area.

Speaking on behalf of the more than 100 people who signed the petition outlining their concerns, Glen Knee asked council for its help.

Acknowledging the city already has publicly stated the group home did not need a permit from the city to open, Knee asked for advice on where the residents could take their concerns next.

Mayor Charles Pender, who said the group home falls under provincial government jurisdiction, said council will do what it can to help the neighbours resolve their issues with the group home.
