Residents of District Two in the City of Tennille will have their chance to provide feedback concerning the City on Saturday, February 26 at noon at the Tennille Fire House.
As previously reported by WACO 100, the Mayor and Council announced dates for the town hall meetings in January; the meetings focus on each district within the City and are designed to get the citizens of Tennille engaged.
“We want to hear what our citizens have to say,” said Mayor Eartha Cummings during a recent City Council meeting. She added, “We want their input.”
Each month, the City of Tennille will conduct a town hall meeting for a particular district on the last Saturday of the month.
“Those meetings are open to everyone, but they’re geared toward the specific districts,” explained Mayor Cummings, adding that the elected officials from the particular districts will be present during those meetings.
Last month, the City of Tennille’s elected officials met with residents of District One.
This month, the focus is on District Two within the City of Tennille.
Those attending the Town Hall meeting on Saturday will meet with the Mayor, as well as their Councilmembers – Rhonda Lemons and Sidney Swan, who represent District Two in the City of Tennille.
Mayor Cummings stated that the goal is to have the Town Hall Meetings prior to the City Council’s retreat scheduled for the spring of this year.
“We want more citizen engagement,” said Mayor Cummings. She noted that feedback received during the Town Hall Meetings will be used during the Council’s retreat. “Ultimately, our citizens will see their ideas come to life.”
The remaining dates for the Tennille Town Hall Meetings are as follows:
– District Two: Saturday, February 26
– District Three: Saturday, March 26
The Tennille Town Hall Meetings will take place at noon at the Tennille Fire House located at 110 Park Street in Tennille on the dates provided.
