Interacting and communicating with our neighbors and citizens outside the walls of City Hall is a priority of Mayor Robert Simison. The City hosts a number of events to meet, answer questions, and interact with the community at large.

Programs like Coffee with the Mayor and local Town Hall Meetings allow the public to communicate with City Hall in a convenient manner on a regular basis.

Coffee with the Mayor

Coffee with the Mayor is an opportunity for the public to meet and mingle with Meridian Mayor Robert Simison and other City leaders in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Attendees are encouraged to discuss community or neighborhood issues, share ideas with one another, network, and to ask any questions they may have. Coffee with the Mayor gatherings are held roughly ever other month at various locations throughout Meridian.

There is no cost to attend this open-house style event, and reservations are not needed. Refreshments will be served.

Town Hall

In an effort to bring City Hall to local neighborhoods, Mayor Robert Simison sponsors a series of local Town Hall Meetings dedicated to a variety of subjects. These meetings allow our neighbors the opportunity to become educated on pressing City issues. Town Hall Meetings occur at least four times throughout the calendar year with notice given in local news publications and on the City web site.
