City of Moreno Valley to Host Telephone Town Hall
For immediate release: March 20, 2017
Mayor will answer questions from residents in interactive meeting to be broadcast in English and Spanish
Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez will host a Telephone Town Hall beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29 to listen to your concerns and answer your questions about City issues.
The Telephone Town Hall is a new feature being offered by the City of Moreno Valley to effectively engage residents in a manner that is convenient for them.
Instead of asking residents to attend a meeting after a long day of work and family commitments, the Telephone Town Hall brings the meeting to their living rooms, cars or wherever they happen to be.
Using a talk-radio format, residents can ask questions live during the call or just listen to the conversation for as long as they like.
“Community engagement is crucial,” said Mayor Gutierrez. “All of our lives are so busy it’s difficult to try to squeeze in one more appointment. The Telephone Town Halls will make it as easy as possible for residents to hear about what is going on in our City, ask questions, and air their concerns. We want to hear from you.”
The Telephone Town Hall will be broadcast simultaneously in English and Spanish. Participants will have the option of listening to the call and asking questions in either language, with responses also provided accordingly.
Residents can register for the call by visiting the Telephone Town Hall Registration page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and providing their name and phone number. Registration will close at noon on March 29.
The City will call registered participants at precisely 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29 to connect you to the Telephone Town Hall. Residents can listen to the call for the entire meeting or just a portion.
Be part of the conversation and register for the March 29 Telephone Town Hall by visiting the Telephone Town Hall Registration page.
