Monthly town meeting tonight, workshop for new mayor and council Friday

Hancock town officials will be holding their monthly town meeting tonight, Wednesday, March 12, at 7 p.m. in the Hancock Town Hall and Community Center.

There will be reports from departments and committees such as town manager, police, parks, and others.

There will also be a chance for citizens to address town officials during citizen’s comments. This portion of the meeting is not a question and answer session and the council will make attempts to address simple issues, but more complex issues will be addressed after further deliberation.

During citizen’s comments, citizens will be limited to five minutes per individual and the mayor reserves the right to reduce this time if deemed necessary to conduct business of the council.

The mayor and council endeavor is to make all town meetings accessible to all citizens, and should the need for assistance arise, contact Town Hall at 301-678-5622.

A second meeting is scheduled for Friday, May 14, as a workshop for the new mayor and council. That meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m.
