City Council Town Hall
Citizens are encouraged to attend a town hall meeting
with the Chowchilla City Council on Thursday, September
8 at 6PM in the Chowchilla Senior Center at 820 W.
Town hall meetings are less
formal than council meetings at City Hall. There is no
set agenda other than to listen and talk with those in
attendance. The forum gives residents the opportunity to
have a more open dialogue with the entire council.
Any topic can be brought up for discussion. Citizens
can engage their elected officials and City staff in
conversations about current and possible future
services, programs, construction projects, business
issues, neighborhoods, housing, public safety, etc.
Chowchilla city government is participatory
government where everyone can have a voice in how the
City functions and responds to needs. This town hall
meeting, along with other community outreach events, is
a worthwhile opportunity for citizens to participate in
planning the future of Chowchilla.
