Ward 3 Town Hall tonight

Burning questions? Bring 'em on...
The third of four Town Halls hosted by Plainfield's City Council takes place this evening at Cedarbrook School on Central Avenue.

Conceived as a means of getting input from residents and taxpayers on issues of concern to the community, the Town Halls have been invaluable as an opportunity for residents to speak out without the formal constraints that hold during regular Council meetings -- plus giving an opportunity for back-and-forth with Councilors.

While they are held in each of the city's four wards, they are meant to be opportunities for anyone from the community to come out and share concerns at any (or all) of the meetings.
In fact, each has had representation from all across the city, and the same is expected for this evening's meeting.

Topics are whatever is on the mind of attendees, and almost always include property taxes, crime and policing, the PMUA, the responsiveness of city government and budget concerns.

Tonight's Town Hall is the next to last for this year; the final Ward 4 meeting takes place next month.

Parking is available in the school lot or on the street (the easiest entry to the Cafetorium is from Central Avenue).
