The Board pf Warren County Commissioners will be hosting a series of “town hall” events around the County to both share their vision for the future and current projects as well as field questions and concerns from constituents in every corner of the region. The Commissioners will stage a total of five Town Hall Meetings throughout the county from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the following dates and locations:
- Wednesday, July 11 at Sheffield Lion’s Den
- Thursday, July 26 at Columbus Fire Department Social Hall
- Wednesday, August 1 at Scandia Social Hall (Old Scandia School)
- Wednesday August 15 at Glade Fire Hall
- Thursday, August 23 at Grand Valley Fire Dept., 12864 Route 27
The Town Hall Meetings are open to the public, will have some refreshments available and consist of presentations by the Commissioners individually, followed by a guided question and answer section where citizens can offer topics of discussion and share concerns.
“I am excited to go out and meet folks in their backyards,” said Commissioner Kafferlin, “and hear about the issues that matter most to them. We have a lot of good things going on in the County, project-wise, and this will be the perfect opportunity to share ideas and talk directly with our constituents about our efforts.”
The presentations will consist of a review of each Commissioners currents projects and plans for the next year-and-a-half as the current board finishes their term. The goal is to provide greater clarity on the goals of the board and of the individual Commissioners, to illustrate to the community how the various initiatives will benefit them.
The question-and-answer section will allow the public to directly engage with the Commissioners to raise concerns and to offer suggestions. Several projects have been launched due to the involvement of the community and the Commissioners consider this an opportunity to gather ideas from citizens and see what the situation is on the ground.
Commissioner Eggleston concluded, “There are a lot of positive things going on in Warren County, both in County Government and with the citizenry. There are also some big challenges. I think this will be a wonderful chance for us to share all of that with each other and learn a lot. I can’t wait.”
