Town Hall meetings planned

The District of Mission has scheduled a set of town hall meetings on Thursdays.

Residents can come to municipal hall council chambers on April 25, Sept. 12 and Dec. 12, 2013 to discuss concerns and share ideas with Mayor Ted Adlem and council.

Councillor Larry Nundal said he doesn’t want council setting the agenda for the meetings, but rather let the residents come with topics in mind.

“My feeling is it should be the public who brings anything forward. Any discussion should be coming from the floor, not from us to the floor,” said Nundal.

Coun. Jenny Stevens agreed. She said this is one council meeting where she hopes she won’t see an agenda.

“This is an open invitation from council, for the public to come and talk to council and staff and raise any topic they want to,” said Stevens. “The agenda belongs to the people.”

All town hall meetings will begin at 7 p.m.
