Hendersonville City Council Members are venturing outside the traditional council meeting format to offer a series of ‘Council Conversations’ in the community. 2020 marks the third year Council Members have hosted collaborative meetings in various neighborhoods throughout the City.
“It is more important than ever for elected leaders to remain accessible to their citizens,” said Hendersonville Mayor Barbara Volk. “These meetings give the public an opportunity to ask questions and interact with City Council in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.”
Each meeting will last approximately one hour and be hosted by an individual member of City Council. Various City staff members will be available to answer questions as well.
