Despite the unexpected snow, the Town Hall meeting was a success! 85 residents were in attendance for a comprehensive overview of many city departments and the impacts of the 2010 budget spending reductions. Don Brackenhoff presented an overview of the new automated trash pickup system and brought a container for everyone to see. Also making presentations and answering resident questions were Fire Chief Rich Benton, City Engineer Mukund Moghe, Streets Superintendent Gary Dickerson, Parks and Recreation Department Head Frank Gustaff (and his assistant, Lisa Bowman), Building Department Head Phil LaHetta and Police Chief Duane Whitely.
This was probably the most informative town hall meeting to date. A summary of information from this meeting is being compiled and will be made available on this web site once it is completed.
I look forward to your feedback as we plan the content and format for the next meeting. Thanks to everyone in attendance, participants and speakers!
