Mayors meet in Seminole County
The Seminole County Chamber of Commerce hosted a State of the Cities breakfast with all seven mayors in the county on Thursday morning.
Local 6 asked the mayors about some of the major issues cities in Seminole County are facing.
For Sanford it's dealing with and fighting crime.
"There are some people that we know of that need to go somewhere else and that's to jail and we have a great partnership with the State Attorneys office to make sure that happen," said Sanford Mayor Jeff Triplett.
For Winter Springs, it's the growth of the city.
"The main thing we need to do is promote commercial growth and give our taxpayers a break by bringing in some businesses that will be a low maintenance opportunity," said Charles Lacy, Mayor of Winter Springs.
Oviedo is pushing to manage big projects coming to the town over the next few years.
"We have a lot of new development coming into town. We've got Oviedo ER coming into town, Oviedo in the Park coming into town," said Oviedo Mayor Dominic Persampiere. "It's really just gonna be managing those large scale projects."
Altamonte Springs is preparing for the new SunRail station to be put in.

The mayor for Longwood says the city is experiencing some change.
"It looks like it's a falling into place right now we are going to be a different city in two years," said Mayor Brian Sackett.
