'Council Conversations' resume

Hendersonville City Council members are venturing outside the traditional council meeting room to participate in ‘Council Conversations’ across the city.

This marks the fourth year council members have hosted collaborative meetings in different areas of the community.

Each meeting will last approximately one hour and will be hosted by an individual member of the City Council. Various city staff members will also be available to answer questions and provide information on city services and programs.
