MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR
Earlier this year, we hosted a series of Meet up with the Mayor events. It was a chance for Boiseans to come together for casual conversations with me and several of our department directors. We discussed historic preservation with Arts and History Director Jennifer Stevens, trail maintenance with Parks and Recreation Director Doug Holloway, fire safety with Chief Niemeyer, and much more.
I am excited to announce another round of Meet up with the Mayor events at locations throughout the city with new featured guests. These are great opportunities for Boiseans to connect with one another, ask questions, and learn about the beautiful place in which we live.
Do you have a question about library circulation, water treatment, pathways or another unique piece of Boise? Are you interested in visiting a library you have yet to see or a park you have not explored? If so, I hope to see you at one of the upcoming Meet up with the Mayor events.
Be well, Boise.
