Niagara Falls lawmakers will conduct public forums on weekends every other month to increase dialogue with city residents, the City Council announced Tuesday.
Dubbed the "Neighbor to Neighbor" series, members of the public are invited to talk about "any and all topics" in a setting characterized as less formal than Council Chambers.
The first session will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday Feb. 15 in the LaSalle branch of Niagara Falls Public Library, 8728 Buffalo Ave.
“We want the people of Niagara Falls to know what’s going on in city government, and we want to know how they feel about it," City Council Chairman Charles A. Walker said in a written statement. "If residents don’t feel that they are a part of the positive changes happening in Niagara Falls, then we aren’t doing our jobs. The 'Neighbor to Neighbor' series is a way to give everyone a voice."
The City Council also has a new Facebook page.
