Louisville’s new mayor, Greg Fischer, has scheduled some new opportunities to meet with citizens and listen to what they have to say. If you have an idea for improving your city, or are concerned with a problem in your neighborhood, you can tell Mayor Fischer and other city officials about it in person at three upcoming sessions at local schools.
“Talk to Greg” meetings are scheduled for July 11 at Jeffersontown High School, Sept. 12 at Valley High School and Nov. 14 at Atherton High.
“I always enjoy hearing directly from citizens on what’s working, what’s not working and how we can do things better,” Fischer said. “Whether it’s a big idea for moving our entire city forward, or something that impacts your neighborhood, I’m ready to listen.”
“Talk to Greg” meetings are held every other month on the second Monday of the month at locations throughout the city. They start at 6 p.m. At each meeting, Fischer is joined by city department directors, mayor’s office staff and Metro Councilmembers. All citizen suggestions and requests will be entered into a computerized city tracking system for follow up and response.
- July 11, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., Jeffersontown High School, 9600 Old Six Mile Lane
- September 12, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., Valley High School, 10200 Dixie Highway
- November 14, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., Atherton High School, 3000 Dundee Rd.
Previously this year, Fischer met with residents at Carter Elementary School in the Park DuValle area and at Southern High School on Preston Highway.
Fischer said he likes being available to citizens, and enjoys hearing their ideas and concerns. In addition to the scheduled face-to-face meetings people can always visit the mayor’s Facebook page or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
