City Council hits the road

The Spokane City Council will hit the road Thursday in a new monthly event meant to spark dialogue on city issues.

City Council President Ben Stuckart promised in his campaign for the office last year to hold regular forums outside Monday City Council meetings so council members could answer constituents’ questions more fully.

The forum, called “Talk About Town” will start at 7 p.m. at Browne Elementary School, 5102 N. Driscoll Blvd.

Stuckart said the new forums will allow for “two-way dialogue” that will be more conducive to topics that aren’t on the regular City Council agenda. For example, he noted that several childcare providers came to Monday’s meeting to discuss concern about state regulations, but council members didn’t have time to provide much feedback.

“We can have more of dialogue rather than just me giving a few statements after seven of them speak,” Stuckart said.

The forum will be held just before the start of the Northwest Neighborhood Council meeting.
