A lot of Seattleites have some, um, strong opinions about the way things went in this city during our recent “snow event.” If you’re one of them, Mayor Nickels wants to talk to you! The mayor is inviting city residents to talk about their winter storm experiences with him, and with department heads and city staff, as part of a citywide performance review of emergency snow operations.
Three meetings are planned, but none in Southeast Seattle; one’s in the Central District, though, so it’s not too far away:
- Tuesday, Jan. 13, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Green Lake Community Center, 7201 East Green Lake Drive North
- Wednesday, Jan. 14, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Garfield Community Center, 2323 East Cherry Street
- Thursday, Jan. 15, 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Southwest Community Center, 2801 Southwest Thistle Street
At the meetings, we’re told you’ll be able to talk one-on-one with the mayor, and also meet with staff from transportation, utilities and other departments.
