Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh will host the Ninth District’s Fall Community Forum on Tuesday, October 9th and the meeting has two goals. It will be a chance to meet and talk with Metro Government officials and the opportunity to help support two sustainable programs.
“It is important that the people of the Ninth District have a chance to meet with me and other officials to learn more about Metro Government,” says Ward-Pugh. “But I also am encouraging folks to be greener by supporting two different programs that are making an impact here and around the world.”
Guest speakers invited to the Community Forum include:
Ms. Maria Koetter, Office of Sustainability
Officer Daniel English, LMPD
Mr. Bennett Knox, Metro Parks – Bradley Greenway Update
Inspector Randy Scott, Codes & Regulations
The Forum will be an opportunity to donate used and new shoes to help WaterStep, a group that provides clean safe drinking water for people in developing countries.
At the same time, donations of handheld electronics to Eco-Cell for the Green Triangle project will also be collected. Acceptable items to donate include cell phones, cell phone accessories, digital cameras, Ipods and MP3 players, GPS handheld units, laptops, e-readers and portable hard drives.
“The Green Triangle is striving to make an impact in our community,” says Ward-Pugh. “Donations like the kind we are asking for not only help fund the program moves us toward more sustainable living practices, which will ensure a better world for all.”

6:00pm Drop off Shoes and Handheld Electronics
