Public encouraged to attend fourth and final event for this year
Frankfort, IN – Mayor Chris McBarnes invites the community to join him and his department heads at his administration’s fourth Mayor’s Night Out event on Wednesday, November 28 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the banquet room at Ponderosa Steakhouse at 2301 East Wabash Street.
“Our Mayor’s Night Out events are open to the entire community as a vehicle to share updates and news about City happenings and hear questions, concerns and suggestions from our residents. These events epitomize our Communications and Citizen Voice cornerstones – communicating information and hearing from those we serve.
“The event is intended to provide a forum for two-way communication and we hope many residents will join us. In addition, the evening is an opportunity to showcase a Frankfort business and we are pleased to partner with our local Ponderosa Steakhouse. I encourage my fellow residents to enjoy a delicious dinner at Ponderosa that evening and then join us in their banquet room for Mayor’s Night Out,” McBarnes said.
Joining the Mayor at the event will be Fire Chief John Kirby, Police Chief Troy Bacon, Building Inspector Sam Payne and Parks and Streets Superintendent George Belmore. Following the Mayor’s remarks, each department head will spend a few minutes sharing updates and accomplishments from his respective department. Residents then will be encouraged to ask questions, make suggestions for areas of improvement and share any issues they are experiencing.
For more complex issues that cannot be addressed and resolved Wednesday night, forms will be available to capture residents’ contact information and details of their issues to allow the Mayor or appropriate department head to respond back in the days following the Mayor’s Night Out.
“Our goal is to make this event a one-stop-shopping type experience for our residents to learn more about what’s happening in their community and have issues resolved on the spot. Our response forms will be used to track more complicated issues requiring follow-up,” McBarnes said.
For questions or interview requests, contact Mayor McBarnes at 654-7332.
