Mayor Brenda Davis said that there will be a 2nd Town Hall Meeting which will be held on Tuesday, September 23rd at 7PM at Wash High Gymnasium.  The CommUNITY Group helped organize our last Town Hall Meeting.  Some change will be made at this Town Hall Meeting.  The School Board has been asked to be present along with all of our City Council members.  Gene Vittone and Dr. DiLorenzo will be asked to attend and participate as well.  Discussion will be on school, youth and family programming, crime and safety, city and neighborhood development, and a general discussion.  Our last Town Hall meeting brought a full room here in Council Chambers and was very successful.  The stakeholders in our community have asked if a discussion could be held with the School Board members.  Dr. DiLorenzo has been facilitating this with the School District   Mayor Davis asked all to attend.  Also, she reminded everyone about the Pony World Series beginning this weekend.   This year there will be a lot of different activities planned.   Mayor Davis stated that our K-9 Officer, Golem, will be attending the Safety Fair on August 23rd . She told everyone that this would be a good time to plan on seeing him, especially for all those who have not had the opportunity yet to meet Golem.
