The listening post is scheduled from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Thursday, June 15, 2017, at Kiwanis Park, and will happen in conjunction with Party in the Park. Council members will be available at the park shelter.
Council listening posts provide opportunities for the community to engage with City leaders on topics that are important to them in an informal setting. Two council members attend each event and report back to the full Council on what they heard from the community during their discussion. All community members are encouraged to stop by and meet with Council representatives to discuss any issue. No formal agenda or presentation is planned.
Party in the Park meets every Thursday through August 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and rotates to a different park in Iowa City. Events feature live music, childrens activities and frozen treats. To view the 2017 Party in the Park Schedule and learn more about these weekly events, visit icgov.org/pr.
For additional information, questions, or suggestions on future locations for Council listening posts, contact Deputy City Clerk Julie Voparil at Julie-Voparil@iowa-city.org or call 319-356-5040.
