Last year’s trio of West St. Paul town hall meetings were cut short by COVID-19, but this year the town halls are moving forward with the new virtual format pioneered during City Council meetings. There will also be expanded Spanish language options.
Three town hall meetings are scheduled at different times and on different days of the week to give more people an opportunity to participate. The town hall meetings will feature elected officials and city staff giving an overview of what to expect in 2021. There will be an opportunity for questions from the public via phone and email. After each town hall a survey will be available to give further input.
Mayor Dave Napier has often reiterated that these meetings are crucial to give the City Council direction as they go into their annual planning meeting.
The three town halls meetings are scheduled for:
- Thursday, February 11 from 1-3 p.m. (Facebook event)
- Wednesday, February 24 from 6-8 p.m. (Facebook event)
- Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m.-Noon (Facebook event)
The town hall meetings can be streamed live from Town Square Television or on cable channel 18 for English and 21 for Spanish.
- Interpretation: The live broadcast will include two channels, one in English and one with Spanish interpretation. On cable, different channels will carry different languages and online there will be separate streams in English and Spanish.
- Survey: The online survey will be available in both English and Spanish.
- Language questions: The survey will include some specific questions about languages spoken in West St. Paul to get better insight on how to serve the community.
