The transition team for mayor-elect of Huntington is planning a series of open meetings over the course of the next four weeks to determine the issues most important to the people who live in the city.
“A Transparent Transition” is the goal of the team, so all meetings will be conducted in the public arena, with an open invitation to all residents to bring their input to the sessions, according to a news release from the transition team.
"I'm eager to hear the results of the team's meetings with the city's department heads and the residents of our neighborhoods," Mayor-elect Steve Williams said in the release. "I'm sure we're going to hear terrific ideas that will move us toward our goal of turning Huntington into an exceptional city."
The schedule for the first round of these sessions is:
Finance Committee, 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28
Economic Committee, 8 a.m. Friday, Nov. 30
Public Safety, 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30
Public Works, 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30
All sessions will take place in Huntington City Hall. For more information, contact Clint McElroy at 304-633-0484, email at firstname.lastname@example.org
