Town hall will be held at Lakelands Park Middle School in Gaithersburg with virtual participation available
The Montgomery County Council will hold a hybrid town hall meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 15 from 7-8:30 p.m. at Lakelands Park Middle School, which is located at 1200 Main St. in Gaithersburg. Councilmembers have scheduled this time to answer questions and listen to concerns from community members. Some of the topics for discussion will include public safety, public health, housing and transportation, and other issues of community concern.
“Civic engagement is a critical component of public service,” said Council President Evan Glass. “This is a great opportunity to share your opinions, ask questions and let us know how we can better serve this County. These public forums highlight the issues impacting residents and strengthen the work of the Council. I encourage residents to join us, and I look forward to a robust discussion.”
The hybrid town hall will have an option to participate virtually through a Zoom webinar. Spanish language interpretation will be available both in-person and virtually. Interpretation in other languages is available upon request with at least three working days’ notice.
