(June 10, 2011) Frisco residents are invited to call in – or come by for the second Town Hall Meeting of 2011 this Monday night, June 13. Once again, the City of Frisco meeting will feature a telephone format, allowing residents to join the meeting from the convenience of their homes.
“Due to the success of our first ‘Telephone Town Hall’ meeting, we wanted to use this method again to communicate to our residents,” said Mayor Maher Maso. “In March, we engaged approximately 2700 folks in the process. Since kids are out of school and many people travel this time of year, we believe the ‘Telephone Town Hall’ is a convenient way to connect with our community. Of course, we hope folks will continue to stop in at City Hall for this meeting.”
The meeting will be held in the City Hall council chambers of the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd. The meeting begins at
7 p.m. During the first half hour, city staff will give presentations on economic development, as well as road construction and improvements.
Beginning at approximately 7:30 p.m., the ‘telephone’ format of the Town Hall meeting will begin. Frisco residents may dial 888 – 886 – 6603, ext. 16815# to join the Town Hall meeting from anywhere. Frisco’s registered voters will also receive a phone call Monday night, inviting them to join the meeting.
During the ‘telephone format’, Mayor Maso and city staff will update residents on public safety and issues related to the Exide Technologies, Inc. battery recycling plant. Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions in person or by phone. The ‘Q & A’ portion of the meeting will follow all staff presentations.
“We are working to improve this format,” said Mayor Maso. “This time around, we’re going to wait to take all questions after staff presentations on agenda topics are finished. Then, we’re going to rotate questions between those seated in the audience and callers. We hope this ‘tweaking’ of the format will help keep everyone engaged.”
A limited number of Frisco ‘vehicle sun shades’ will be distributed to residents who attend the meeting in person.
Town Hall meetings last two hours and are typically held three times each year.
