Great Bend favors designated area for exchange of online purchases

Nichelle Holinde received favorable feedback from the Great Bend City Council and City Administration Monday night when she proposed creating a safe zone to exchange purchases made online.

Holinde wanted to position signs in front of two parking stalls north of the Great Bend Police Department designating them for people exchanging purchases. Holinde is one of the administrators to the Great Bend: Buy, Sell, Trade Facebook page that allows users to post items for sale and eventually meet up to complete the deal.
