Spokane Mayor David Condon will host the next installment in the City’s ongoing series of community conversations on Tuesday, June 9 from 6-7 p.m. Citizens are invited to join the discussion and offer feedback on how the City is servicing the Spokane community’s priorities.
Residents will be contacted using technology that allows the City to call thousands of people to ask if they want to participate in the meeting. Citizens can also opt into the meeting by calling 855.312.2107 between 6 and 6:45 p.m.
“As we start the 2016 budget process and solidify plans to drive economic prosperity, it’s time to check in to be sure resources remain aligned to citizen priorities,” Condon said. “The goal of the Telephone Town Hall is to make it easy for people to join the conversation when and where it’s most convenient to them.”
Citizens who prefer to participate in person can come to the City Council Chambers at City Hall on June 9 to join the discussion live. People can also participate in the community conversation on social media @spokanecity on Twitter and Facebook. The entire evening will be broadcast live on on CityCable 5 and streamed on SpokaneCity.org
For the past three years, the Telephone Town Hall has been one of the ways citizens have been able to stay informed about City performance and offer input. Last summer, the City engaged than 10,000 people on the phone and another 15,000 people via social media.
