Community Conversations with Mayor Kelly Girtz

Monthly on the 4th Wednesday, beginning at 6:00 p.m. 

Due to the change in format to monthly conversations around different topics and the length of the conversations, the sessions will no longer include the Q&A segment. Please email the Mayor's Office with any general questions.
