Community Invited to Tour City Hall During Open House Event
Informational event the evening of July 17 encourages friendly, open dialogue.
TEMPLE CITY, CA (June 29, 2019)—We’ve all heard the words “City Hall.” But what actually goes on there?
Wednesday, July 17, is your chance to find out, as Temple City’s City Hall opens its doors for an informational event geared toward introducing the community to the inner workings of local government.
The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, located at 9701 Las Tunas Dr. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour the building and mingle with representatives from all four City departments: administrative services, management services, community development, and parks and recreation.
The goal, according to Temple City Mayor Nanette Fish, is to foster a dialogue between City staffers and residents that’s both educational and informal. Council members and departmental representatives alike will be on hand to answer questions from residents about issues of interest, listen to those residents’ concerns, and share news about current and upcoming City projects.
“It’s important to us that our community members feel comfortable enough to ask questions and voice their concerns to our city’s representatives,” Fish said. “But still, opening up at a traditional public forum—such as a city council meeting—can be intimidating even for seasoned speakers.
“We hope that by hosting a low-key event like this one, we’ll be able to open up new lines of communication between City staffers and residents,” she added. “We’re certainly all ears.”
City swag will be available while supplies last. Following the open house, attendees are encouraged to head outside City Hall for a free concert at Temple City Park by Elvis Presley tribute musician Raymond Michael.
