Evans to hold first “listening post” meeting

During Monday’s workshop meeting of the Henderson City Council, member Mary Emma Evans asked City Manager Ray Griffin for information on a listening post meeting for Ward 1.

Griffin told members that Evans had requested the meeting for Tuesday, May 12, 2009, to be held at City Hall at 134 Rose Avenue. He said that he would work on an agenda, and that Henderson Mayor Pete O’Geary would be needed to preside.

Evans said that people “have so many concerns in the city”, although she added that not all of the topics would be “bad”. She said that she hopes people will come together to talk about issues and bring them to the council.

The meeting will be held at 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. Griffin said he needed to “firm up the time.”
