Ward 4 Town Hall tonight

Bring your burning questions to tonight's final Town Hall.
Plainfield City Council's final Town Hall meeting of its 2013 series will be held this evening at the Jefferson School, 1750 West Front Street (the former Social Security office) at 7:00 PM.

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 last for this year
