City councilors to host town hall meeting Thursday

From Republican City Councilor Derek Czenczelewski:

On Thursday, Feb. 28, City Councilors Henri Martin and Derek Czenczelewski will host the third “Town Hall” meeting with the public at the Bristol Public Library, lower level meeting room 2, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions, we want to hear from you! There are a number of issues to cover at Thursday’s meeting, including the budget process, downtown redevelopment, multiple school properties that may be sold and much more. Although we will update the public and answer questions on these topics in particular, these meetings are free for all to attend and are open to any and all topics the public would like to cover. Additionally, any attendees are free to come and go as they please. No one is required to attend the entire meeting except us, your representatives.

With budget hearings set to begin in March, along with public hearings on the fate of the former Memorial Boulevard School and possibly Bingham, Jennings and O’Connell, it is imperative that the public participates. For years the public has asked to be better kept in the loop, and for more transparency in government. These informal ‘Town Hall’ meetings are a great opportunity for every concerned citizen to share their views and have their opinions heard, while providing the very level of transparency that has been desired for so long. Please join us, share your thoughts, and help us better serve you.”
