Delphi Council member invites public to talk to him

Comet staff report

Delphi City Council member Dale Seward will host town hall-style meetings two times each month indefinitely.

“I’m hoping to hear from my constituents about their thoughts, feelings, problems and ideas,” Seward stated in a press release on Tuesday.

The first get together will be next week, May 22 at 9 a.m., at the northwest corner of Washington and Franklin streets. The second meeting this month will be May 23 at 6 p.m. at the same location. The council member advised he will host two meetings each month in a similar fashion. Upcoming meetings will be announced at the beginning of each month.

Seward said he expects the meetings to be short, roughly 30 minutes. Council member Seward, who has been in office for 17 months, said he believes it is important to give community residents and business owners every opportunity to discuss issues which are important to them. Seward said sometimes a formal meeting setting, such as a City Council meeting, is not comfortable for people to feel like they can talk freely.

“I want to remove any barriers anyone has about giving the city government feedback and suggestions,” Seward said.
