In an effort to increase communication between the City and Edmonds residents, Mayor Dave Earling has scheduled the first in a series of town hall meetings he plans to host throughout Edmonds. First up – Perrinville, scheduled for Thursday, June 12th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at the Corner Coffee Bar & Café located at 18401 76th Ave. W., Edmonds.
During his “State of the City” address earlier this year, Earling discussed the need for better, more open communication and his plans to publish bi-weekly articles in the local media and hold quarterly town hall meetings. Other plans include experimentation with Facebook, YouTube, and Google Plus, and are scheduled to launch over the coming weeks.
To date, there have been 10 articles written about varying topics and by various individuals, including Earling, the Port, Swedish, and city directors, all of which have been published in My Edmonds News.
The Perrinville Town Hall will be the first of three town hall meetings, aimed at providing the community with an overview of the city, information on current issues relating to the specific area they live in, and an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
The Mayor and city directors will attend and will provide brief presentations.
Two more meetings will be scheduled for later in the year at other locations throughout town, focusing on issues related to those areas.
