Conshohocken residents can share concerns with commissioners

February 4, 2014 by  

After the success of “Conversations with Your Commissioners” last year, officials in Montgomery County, which includes Conshohocken, have decided to do it again.

During the month of February, the commissioners will make six public appearances. During the event, which will be held at locations across the county, people will have a chance to ask questions and share their concerns with the commissioners.

Although the county makes use of social media and live streaming, the in-person meetings let the commissioners engage with residents on a personal level. Josh Shapiro, the chairman for the commissioners, stated in a press release that the Conversations this year will focus on the achievements of the past two years while looking ahead at what the next two years hold in store.

To prepare for the Conversation sessions, the commissioners can use order digital business cards, which they can hand out at each events. The business cards could contain contact information so that residents can get in touch with further questions or concerns.

The first session will take place on Feb. 6 at the Lower Pottsgrove Township Building, at 7:00 pm. The next Conversation will be held at the Abington Township Building on Feb. 8 at 10:00 am, followed by a meeting at the Ambler Borough Hall on Feb. 10 at 7:00 pm, then a meeting at Bryn Mawr’s Ludington Library at 10:00 am on Feb. 15.

The last two meetings will be held on Feb. 24 and Feb. 27 at 7:00 pm. The meeting on Feb. 24 wil take place at East Greenville’s Grand Theater and the meeting on the 27th will be held at the Norristown Municipal Building.
