In an effort to promote citizen engagement and transparency in government, Hamilton City Manager Joshua Smith makes appearances throughout the city for his new program titled Coffee with the City Manager.
This program is aimed at enabling a relaxed conversation in a comfortable environment with residents and business owners to discuss topics of their choice. In addition to topics brought up by residents and business owners, Mr. Smith will provide updates on key city initiatives such as the Strategic Plan, the annual budget, capital projects, pending issues being discussed by City Council, and a variety of other topics.
Mr. Smith stated this program is the latest in the City’s efforts to provide substantive and accurate information to its residents. “The City provides a wealth of information via its website and social media outlets, but unfortunately not everyone has the ability to access this information via the Internet. This is a more proactive approach in the dissemination of information by hitting the streets and talking to residents and business owners on a more personal level,” stated Smith. Each 'Coffee with the City Manager' will have an area host.
All Coffee with the City Manager events are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend. If you are interested in scheduling your own Coffee with the City Manager event, please contact Amy Bach by phone at 513-785-7002 or email.
