The “Mayor’s Community Listening Sessions, which began in June, are scheduled to continue with additional live on-line web chats, community meetings and neighborhood walks each month throughout the remainder of the year.
The next live chat will take place at U-46 Headquarters, 355 Chicago Street, Room 140 on Tuesday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. Residents can log in to participate on-line each month at www.cityofelgin.org and follow the link on the home page to chat live with the mayor. Participants can type in comments and questions and the mayor will respond directly in the webcast. Residents are encouraged to participate either on-line or in person.
The purpose of these outreach events is for the mayor and other council members to hear directly from residents on issues, ideas and concerns they would like to share with their city government. These sessions are intended to provide a forum to discuss the important policy issues that will shape the future of our community.
