SANATOGA PA – Montgomery County Commissioners say they’re eager to meet tonight (Monday, March 24, 2014) in Lower Pottsgrove, finally, with residents of the county’s western municipalities during the last segment of their second annual “Conversations With Your Commissioners” sessions.
Inclement weather and other conflicts have twice postponed the event, during which Commissioners Josh Shapiro, Leslie S. Richards, and Bruce L. Castor Jr. hope to get up close and personal with those who live and work here, hear their needs and concerns, and talk about the county’s recent accomplishments.
The town hall will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. in Lower Pottsgrove’s municipal building, 2199 Buchert Rd. The meeting is free and open to the public. No reservations are needed.
It previously had been planned for March 5, and that was re-scheduled from a winter weather delay Feb. 6.
The initial town-hall-on-wheels meeting conducted by county commissioners last year “was extremely well-attended and gave residents of the county the opportunity to discuss a wide range of subjects, county Communications Director Frank X. Custer said. The commissioners held earlier town halls in Norristown, Ardmore, Ambler, and East Greenville.
“These sessions are just another way we keep residents informed about what we are doing,” commission Chairman Josh Shapiro said. “We live stream our meetings on line and use social media a great deal to inform everyone about what is going on in the county, but (these) conversations provide a true, personal level of contact the others do not.”
Shapiro said commissioners plan to use the meetings to review what the county administration has done during its first two years, and to outline its plans for its final two years.
