County Council to Host Town Hall Meeting in Clarksburg
The Montgomery County Council will host a Town Hall meeting at Rocky Hill Middle School in Clarksburg at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, March 2.
The Montgomery County Council, which each year holds Town Hall Meetings throughout the County in its efforts to find out what issues most concern residents, will meet with residents of the County’s fastest-growing community when it hosts a Town Hall Meeting for Clarksburg residents on March 2.
The Council originally planned to host the Town Hall Meeting for Clarksburg on Jan. 27, but that meeting was postponed following the overwhelming snow storm that hit the Washington region that week.
The meeting will be recorded by County Cable Montgomery (CCM—cable Channel 6 on Comcast and RCN, Channel 30 on Verizon) and rebroadcast at various times in the weeks following the meeting. Susan Kenedy, a producer for the County station, will moderate the meeting.
The nine-member Council is composed of President Nancy Floreen; Vice President Roger Berliner; and Councilmembers Marc Elrich, Tom Hucker, Sidney Katz, George Leventhal, Nancy Navarro, Craig Rice and Hans Riemer.
Residents will be encouraged to ask questions on any issue. Among the issues that are expected to be discussed are the continued development of Clarksburg, the impact on the community of the future outlet mall, efforts to protect the Ten Mile Creek area, schools, transportation needs, public safety including the location of a new fire station and the upcoming process to formulate the County’s Fiscal Year 2017 operating budget.
“We are constantly seeking new and better ways to find out what most concerns County residents,” said Council President Floreen. “We are always looking at how new technology can help residents more easily contact us on the things that are important to them. However, there remain few better ways for elected officials to interact with residents than meeting with them directly at forums such as Town Hall Meetings. With so much going on in Clarksburg, we are all looking forward to this meeting.”
