Next Saturday, Aug 12, Noon-2 pm at the Carver Center. 2nd of Council's Listening Tour meetings, this one on Code Enforcement. Bring a smartphone if you have one or a pen if you don't. They'll be asking the questions, not the other way around. And they probably won't give you much time to text or write your opinion on each aspect of codes, let alone give thoughtful answers. But hopefully, there will be time allotted to speak one-on-one with a council person or with someone from the codes department like they did last time.
