The Peak Freedom Forum is hosting a wide-ranging community discussion about the city’s new form of government.
The discussion will be from 5-7 p.m. June 27 at the Mining Exchange downtown.
Panelists include political science professor Bob Loevy, City Council President Scott Hente, former City Manager Jim Mullen, former Mayor Mary Lou Makepeace, Gazette editorial page editor Wayne Laugesen and Kevin Walker, who led the campaign in support of the so-called strong mayor form of government.
“This isn’t a debate about the current mayor, but about the new system under which he and City Council are now operating, with one year’s experience under their belts,” organizers said in an email.
“Is it a plus? Or is it a minus? What appears to be working? What doesn’t? What are the new system’s strengths? What are its weaknesses? What steps, if any, might be taken to resolve any problems? And when should we take them?”
The discussion isn’t free.
