Talktober set for Civic Centre

With last year's civic elections now out of the way, Talktober, the opportunity for Prince George residents to raised their question and concerns directly with city council members, is back on the calendar.

It's set for two days, Tues., Oct. 1 and Wed., Oct. 2, at the Civic Centre. Council members and staff will be on hand from noon to 8 p.m. and presentations will be held at 12:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on both days.

Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session facilitated by Mayor Lyn Hall. There will also be displays and staff from the service centre at city hall will be there to take service requests from residents.

"Talktober began in 2015 as a way for council to reconnect with residents," Hall said. "This year will be no different, but because infrastructure reinvestment is such an important issue, and because Prince George's population appears to be continuing to grow and in-fact could be nearing an all-time high, Talktober 2019 will feature information about the state of our utilities, roads, civic facilities, and parks - all of the civic assets commonly referred to as 'infrastructure.' They are a big part of what the City provides to support businesses, recreation, culture, and overall quality of life."

The City will also be providing information at and through social media channels to complement the events.

In addition, Talktober 2019 will feature an online web survey to collect feedback about residents' priorities to be used to inform council's 2020 budget deliberations.
