If you want the latest information on what’s going on in Crawfordsville and Montgomery County, plan to attend the “State of the City/County Address” on Jan. 22, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County and the Indiana Federation of Business & Professional Women of Montgomery County.
Presenters will be Mayor Todd Barton and Commissioner Jim Fulwider who will provide the latest information on the status of various topics and concerns affecting the citizens of the city and the county. What’s the status of the Steller project? How’s the Ben Hur project moving along? What’s the status of city/county budgets? What’s the current direction of economic development? Are wind farms still in our future? These are just a few of the questions that individuals may be wondering about and this is an opportunity to hear firsthand where our leaders feel we are and what’s their vision of the coming year.
“While the League is a non-partisan organization, we feel strongly that citizens have every opportunity to hear from their elected representatives, in person, so that they can form their own opinions on how well they are being represented”, commented S. David Long, League Vice President and coordinator of the event. He added, “I think it’s also important that they hear when and how both levels of local government are or are not working together on various issues.”
The event will be held at the Crawfordsville High School Auditorium beginning at 7:00pm with doors opening at 6:30pm. Both officials will be available in the commons area to meet with the public both prior to and after their presentations to answer questions or listen to concerns. Light refreshments will be provided. Copies of the latest edition of the League’s FOCUS book on Montgomery County along with copies of the 2017 Government Directory will also be available at the door.
