Mayor Emily Larson is continuing her commitment to reach out to Duluth residents through City Hall in the City Community Listening sessions that are held in neighborhoods across the city. Mayor Larson started these listening sessions last year in partnership with City Councilors to ensure residents have an opportunity to speak directly to their elected officials one-on-one. City staff are also in attendance and represent Public Works, Parks, Public Safety and Imagine Duluth Comprehensive Plan. The previous year’s sessions enabled residents to have open individualized conversations with the Mayor, City Councilors or City staff about various issues or topics of concern.
“I really enjoy these gatherings. It’s an easy way for neighbors to connect with me, City Councilors and staff. Equally important, however: these evenings provide us with an opportunity to connect with neighborhoods and to gain critical input. Conversations we have here guide our decision making and help inform our work. City Hall is in the City is family friendly, and open to all residents. You don’t need to live in the vicinity of the meeting space to attend,” said Mayor Larson.
The upcoming City Hall in the City listening sessions will occur on the third Wednesday of the month and run from 5:30-7:00 pm. These events are open to all residents. Children are also welcome to attend. The first set of dates with City Councilors and locations are as follows:
April 19 - Councilor Noah Hobbs at American Indian Community Housing Organization (AICHO), in Trepanier Hall, 202 West 2nd Street
May 17 – Councilor Zack Filipovich at Piedmont Heights Community Center, 2302 West 23rd Street
The remaining listening sessions will be announced at a later date.
The Earned Sick and Safe Time Task Force gathers information, collects public input, proposes the best options for implementing ESST policies and brings forward policy recommendations.
Parents are encouraged to stop by a car seat safety clinic to have their child's car seat inspected free of charge. When a parent arrives, a certified car seat safety technician climbs into the vehicle to inspect child safety seats. Necessary adjustments will be made so the seats are properly installed to protect children in the event of a crash. The technician will also answer parents' questions or concerns about car seat safety. No appointment is necessary. People will be helped on a first come, first served basis. Questions, please call 730-4397 (Sandy McComb), 348-0173 (Laura Owen), 249-5449 (Kathryn Brown), or 730-4398 (Marnie Grondahl).
