|El Paso County, CO, Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2016 – El Paso County’s Citizens Outreach Group is hosting a town-hall style meeting featuring members of the Board of El Paso County Commissioners, the Colorado Springs City Council, and the Mayor’s Office from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at the Pikes Peak Regional Development Center.
Officials will be answering live questions from the public in attendance, and discussing local topics of interest.
“This town hall meeting will be a great opportunity to see how El Paso County Commissioners and Colorado Springs City Council members are working together for the citizens,” said Commissioner Chair Amy Lathen. “I encourage everyone to attend to see the exciting ways we are moving our community forward and get any questions they may have for us answered.”
Citizens Outreach Group chairman, Ed Dills, will moderate the town hall. “Part of COG’s mission is to help the county engage with the community,” Dills said. “A town hall meeting is a great opportunity for open discussion on topics that are important to the citizens.”
The Pikes Peak Regional Development Center is located at 2880 International Circle, just west of Printers Parkway. The town hall is in the upstairs hearing room; parking is free.
The Citizens Outreach Group (COG), composed of county residents, advises the Board of El Paso County Commissioners on topics of concern, reaches out to citizens and facilitates communication between the Board of County Commissioners and its constituents, and coordinates outreach events and activities to build citizen confidence in El Paso County Government. The COG hosts the El Paso County Citizens College. The COG is one of more than 40 volunteer boards and commissions supporting El Paso County.
