Mayor's Community Conversations Continue in 2010

Thursday December 31, 2009

Abramson’s final Community Conversations will be at new downtown arena

Mayor Jerry Abramson today announced that his monthly meetings designed to make city government accessible to citizens will continue next year. Abramson said the final “Mayor’s Community Conversations” of 2010 – and his last as Mayor of Louisville – will be held November 15 in the new downtown arena at Second and Main.

The first Mayor’s Community Conversations is Monday, January 25, 6:30 p.m., at Newburg Middle School.

“Community Conversations are a great opportunity for citizens to bring their suggestions and concerns directly to me, city department directors and Metro Council members,” Abramson said. “With the economic challenges we all face, it’s more important than ever that residents can connect with the services and information they need from city government.”

At Mayor’s Community Conversations, Abramson, along with directors from most Metro Government agencies, Metro Council members and other government representatives, meet one-on-one with citizens and answer questions and take suggestions. MetroCall 311 customer-service representatives also attend to log citizen requests into city government’s tracking system to ensure timely follow up and response.

Since the Mayor’s Community Conversations began in 2003, thousands of citizens have attended the monthly sessions to discuss topics ranging from planning and zoning, drainage, and crime prevention to parks, retail development and animal regulations.

Special accommodations are available, by calling MetroCall 311 or 574-5000 in advance.

Community Conversations are scheduled on the third Monday of the month* at 6:30 p.m. at rotating sites throughout the community.
