Councillor Rob Foster and I held a Ward Meeting a week ago today and about fourteen people came out. We advertised in the local paper and handed out flyers in some neighbourhoods that had specific issues we are aware of.
It was an informal round-table type forum that everyone in Ward One, Lincoln was welcome to attend. Our goal was really to have a general discussion and to try to keep in touch with how people are feeling about things going on in the community. The good news is that it worked out well. We have a list of concerns that people raised, and are working at giving each item attention and hopefully resolving them.
Our intention is to do this again – If you live in Ward One…. or even in another Ward but have something that you need to discuss… Please attend the next meeting.
The general outcome was that we are a little closer to some people in the community than we were before. Time marches on after an election and unfortunately communication can be a casualty.
