City sets second round of 'Council Conversations'

The Hendersonville City Council has set a second round of Council Conversations to hear from constituents at various locations scattered across the city.

“Last year these meetings were very valuable to us as a Council because we were able to hear citizen priorities and concerns,” said Mayor Barbara Volk. “Having these conversations in a less formal setting opens the door to engaging with people who might not regularly attend a traditional City Council meeting.”
Each meeting is hosted by an individual council member with the city manager and staff in attendance to help answer questions or provide information. Each location’s conversations will be guided by input from attendees to identify the topics that are most important to them.
“This year, in addition to answering questions and hearing feedback, we want to empower community members to take ownership and collaborate with us on solutions,” Volk said.
Council Conversations are scheduled for the following locations at 6 p.m.:
• Sept. 10, Dry Falls Brewing Company, 425 Kanuga Road, hosted by Councilman Jeff Miller.
• Sept. 17, Hendersonville Church of Christ, 1975 Haywood Road, hosted by Mayor Pro Tem Ron Stephens.
• Sept. 23, St. Paul’s Tabernacle Church, 813 Sixth Ave. W., hosted by Councilman Jerry Smith.
• Oct. 1, Henderson County Boys and Girls Club, 1304 Ashe St., hosted by Mayor Volk.
• Oct. 15, Blue Ridge Health, 2579 Chimney Rock Road, hosted by Councilman Steve Caraker.
