Dysart et al Mayor Andrea Roberts and Deputy Mayor Pat Kennedy will host a town hall meeting in council chambers on Saturday, Nov. 30.
The meeting, which is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m., will include a review of the first year of the current council term, a discussion about future plans, and offer an opportunity for residents to ask questions and make suggestions for the municipality.
“We wanted to offer the opportunity for better communication between council and the public,” Roberts said in an email to the Echo. “We get asked to attend lake association meetings but don’t do anything like that in town. This will be a chance to give our first year in review, let the public know what things we have planned going forward, and then open the floor to questions. I’m hoping for a positive conversation, it’s not meant to be specific to individual complaints. Obviously no decisions or promises will be made, but we are there to serve the people, so this meeting is for us to hear from the public.”
Roberts and Kennedy will be the only members of council speaking and taking questions at the meeting, although other members of council may be in attendance.
Dysart et al council chambers are located at 135 Maple Ave. in the Village of Haliburton.
