Rey: Public meets to talk 5th Ward issues
A public forum was held Saturday at Barb City Manor, hosted by Alderman Ron Naylor. This was a typical “town forum” type meeting with no set agenda. Upon introductions, it was revealed that participants have lived in the community from one year to a lifetime. The audience included single-family residents and landlords. Throughout the meeting, there were about 20 people in attendance.
Good, open discussion covered a variety of topics – from upkeep of properties, garbage pickup, street and alley maintenance projects and housing ordinances. Oh, yes, loose dogs and noise pollution also were topics of concern for the attendees.
Naylor is a good listener and took copious notes with commitment to follow up on matters of concern. This town hall meeting format is an opportunity to gain access to our representative on the council, without time limits on citizen input.
