Mitchell Congress calls town hall meeting for District 2 citizens

City Councilman Mitchell Congress will hold a town hall meeting Wednesday, Oct. 20 at Rooster Hall for the residents of District 2.

“I promised during the campaign I would meet with the people of District 2,” Congress said of the decision to hold the forum.

Congress indicated residents of the district have contacted him recently regarding a number of concerns in the community. Those communications have prompted the scheduling of the meeting.

“Some of the people contacted me with concerns about streets, dilapidated housing and things in our area,” Congress said. The city councilman said the meeting will cover a number of topics from road paving, water and sewer in the area to community development, public safety and the city budget.

“From there I will see what I can do to take their concerns to the council,” Congress said of the event, which is not unlike a meeting he has conducted in the past regarding issues for residents on Sunset Road.

“I just hope to see everybody from District 2,” Congress said. “We’ll have refreshments as well.”
