Got a gripe with the county? Maybe a question or a proposal? Well, Thursday is the time to speak up when El Paso County Commissioners host a town hall at 6:30 p.m. at the Centennial Hall auditorium, 200 S. Cascade Ave.
“It’ll be an open format for people to ask questions and voice their concerns,” said commissioner chairwoman Amy Lathen. “We want to make sure we’re facilitating open discussion on issues that matter to people in the community. It’ll be a very casual setting.”
COG members come from the five districts and are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. The COG coordinates outreach programs and activities throughout the year.
COG chairman Ken Valdez said, “We’ll ask each of the commissioners to make a few opening remarks focused on their priorities and concerns and then we’ll open it up for questions and discussion. When our group has hosted these town hall meetings in the past, they have been a good opportunity for residents to ask questions and get answers.”
