“Talk to Greg” meetings set for West, Southwest Louisville
Two more of Mayor Greg Fischer’s face-to-face meetings with citizens will be held in West Louisville in September and Valley Station in November, Fischer announced today.
Whether you have a big idea for the city, or a small problem in your own neighborhood, the “Talk to Greg” meetings are a chance to bring it up directly with the mayor and other city officials.
“Talk to Greg” meetings are scheduled for Sept. 10 at Brandeis Elementary School, 2817 W. Kentucky St., and Nov. 12 at Stuart Middle School, 4601 Valley Station Rd.
“I always enjoy hearing directly from citizens on what’s working, what’s not working and how we can do things better,” Fischer said. “Whether it’s a big idea for moving our entire city forward, or something that impacts your neighborhood, I’m ready to listen.”
The meetings with citizens are held every other month on the second Monday of the month at locations throughout the city. They start at 6 p.m. At each meeting, Fischer is joined by city department directors, mayor’s office staff and Metro Councilmembers. All citizen suggestions and requests are entered into a computerized city tracking system for follow up and response.
Sept. 10, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Brandeis Elementary School, 2817 W. Kentucky St.
Nov. 12, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Stuart Middle School, 4601 Valley Station Rd.
In addition to the face-to-face meetings with citizens, Mayor Fischer holds “virtual” Talk to Greg sessions online when people can connect with him and other city officials on Facebook and Twitter. In between the sessions, citizens can always connect with the mayor on Facebook by going to “Mayor Greg Fischer” and on Twitter to @louisvillemayor.
