The Bannock County Commissioners’ Office is preparing to host a series of community meetings throughout southern Bannock County to provide opportunities for public input.
Those who attend will have the chance to meet the newly elected officials, hear what the officials are working on, and ask questions.
While the Commissioners’ Office is hosting the meetings, other Bannock County elected officials may attend, depending on availability.
The meetings will be held in the evenings at public locations in Southern Bannock County, so they are accessible to people who don’t live near the courthouse where most public meetings occur.
“We want to continue improving transparency and community access for all our residents. After listening to the feedback from our previous meetings, we scheduled these meetings in the evenings to allow for greater participation,” said Commissioner Jeff Hough.
Meetings will typically be scheduled a month in advance and will be posted on the Bannock County Commissioners’ webpage. The public can also contact the commissioners at any time by using the contact form on the commissioners’ webpage, bannockcounty.us/commissioners.
The first meeting of the series is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Marsh Valley Community Center, 21 S Main St., in Downey.
