Hollywood residents will soon have an opportunity to meet with members of the commission in a more informal manner.
During a recent meeting, the commission agreed to have four meetings; once a quarter. Each meeting would take place in a different part of Hollywood and all residents would be encouraged to come. During the first half hour, there will be a meet and greet and residents will be encourage to fill out cards with questions. Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions about any problems they might be having with the city such as taxes, traffic, crime and other issues.
“This will give residents a forum to talk about matter that concern them,” said Commissioner Peter Hernandez. He is a strong proponent of the quarterly meetings.
The City Manager has asked to coordinate the days that all commissioners would have available for a community meeting. And the locations for the meetings are being determined.
During the first half hour, people will have an opportunity meet and socialize. Refreshments will likely be offered and there may even be pizza for individuals and families who might like to have dinner.
During the recent meeting, commission members said they believed the community meetings would be a good opportunity to city residents to express their concerns to the commission.
