#TalkDelta Municipal Open Houses
Mar 23, 2015
#TalkDelta with us at one of three upcoming #TalkDelta Municipal Open Houses on April 8, 9 & 15 in Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta.
Get to know the people behind your local government, learn how we serve the community through important services and programs, and have a conversation with the experts about issues and initiatives in the community.
Each #TalkDelta Municipal Open House will feature two half-hour Town Hall meetings hosted by Mayor Lois E. Jackson (State of the Community at 6 pm & Transportation in Your Community at 7:30 pm on the Main Stage), where residents can take part in a roundtable-style discussion with the Mayor.
Start the engagement early and join us for a Twitter Town Hall about transportation on Tuesday, April 7, 12–1 pm. Follow @CorpDelta and take part in the discussion.
