Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly will make himself and members of his staff available on June 25 for open office hours to meet with residents one-on-one, according to a news release from city hall.
The meetings will serve as a guide for the Kelly administration's budgeting process in August, helping Kelly distribute the city's resources more effectively and prioritize the needs of Chattanoogans, the release states.
"As we grapple with how to tackle the problems faced by our residents, it's vital that we engage with constituents as early and often as possible," Kelly said in a released statement.
"From paying first responders a competitive wage to ensuring that we have the resources to fill potholes, Chattanoogans should have a say in how we triage the obstacles facing our city."
The open office hours will be held at the Brainerd Recreational Center, 1010 N. Moore Road, between 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Time slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, and appointments can be made by calling 423-643-7814 or by visiting cha.city/openoffice.
