Ways to Engage
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, Local Town Hall Meetings and The City of Meridian Speakers Bureau allow the public to communicate with City Hall in a convenient, casual manner.
