ROME – A town hall was held Tuesday in Rome, aimed at addressing KKK fliers recently being distributed in a local neighborhood.

The public came out to learn more about how the incident is being handled. People were able to voice their concerns to law enforcement, The Rome Common Council, the Rome City School District, and other agencies about the incident.

Sheriff Rob Maciol gave an update on the investigation into who might be distributing the fliers.

He says deputies have been conducting interviews in Rome neighborhoods, and are working closely with state police to find the person responsible for the fliers. So far, deputies have not found anyone, but the investigation is ongoing.

Maciol says while no laws were broken it’s important to know who’s distributing the fliers in case that person could be linked to any criminal activity.

This is the second forum being held in Rome about the incident. There was recently a public meeting at Jervis Library as well.
Anyone who has information about the investigation, including home surveillance cameras, are asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 315-736-0141. All calls will remain confidential.
