Tempe Considers Designating 'Safe Spot' For Internet Sales
Tempe Councilman Kolby Granville will ask the police and public works departments to designate a safe location for Internet sale exchanges.
The idea came after a resident approached Councilman Kolby Granville at a public event.
“Someone came up to me and said, ‘Hey, you know, I buy stuff on Craigslist and sell stuff online and it’s always kind of weird to meet someone in the parking lot of a grocery store,'" Granville said.
The resident asked Granville if the city could designate a place for transactions that is well-lit with video surveillance.
"It seemed super simple and it made perfect sense," said Granville. "And, frankly I was kind of surprised we weren't already doing it."
During Thursday afternoon's work study session, Granville will ask that the city designate and promote a safe place for exchanges.
