Fifth District Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske announced this week that her sixth annual “State of the Fifth District” will be organized differently this year in order to give residents a chance to identify the top ten items on which the City should focus in 2012.
“In addition to recapping what has been accomplished in the past year at this event,” said Schipske, “I think we need to provide residents the chance to speak up and help identify the top ten items they would like the City to accomplish in 2012.” That list will be published on Schipske’s blog and sent to Mayor Bob Foster and other members of the City Council.
City Manager Pat West and Schipske will present a brief overview of what the city accomplished in 2011 and discuss some of the “big-ticket items” that will be coming before the Council in 2012.
“I will also review where infrastructure– sidewalks, curbs, and streets– will be repaired in the 5th district,” Schipske said.
The event, which is open to the public, will take place Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 6:30pm at the El Dorado Community Center, 2800 Studebaker Rd.
