City Council president sets coffee dates at City Hall, one for each ward

posted by Billie Owens in batavia.

City Council President Brooks Hawley will be holding six City Hall meetings, one for each ward. The meetings will be entitled “Coffee with the City Council President” and will be held at City Hall in the Community Room.

These meetings will be used as a direct connection to the president to have a forum with residents to collect thoughts, concerns, ideas or interests from city residents. The meetings will be held from 10 a.m. – noon on the following days:.

Ward 1         Saturday, June 14th

Ward 2         Saturday, June 21st

Ward 3         Saturday, July 19th

Ward 4         Saturday, Aug. 2nd

Ward 5         Saturday, Aug. 9th

Ward 6         Saturday, Aug. 23rd

“I hope and encourage Batavia city residents to come meet with me personally at these times and dates. I look forward to the dialogue and opportunity to sit and talk with constituents about our community,” said Brooks Hawley, City Council president.

I give Brooks credit for this move. Nice idea.

I think the meetings are a good start, but, each ward would be better served if the meetings were in each ward and not on Brooks' official turf. Perhaps a tour of the ward with the representing council person, before the meeting , would bring added value to any discussion with residents. People are more inclined to attend, and feel more comfortable , when the meetings are closer to home.
