The purpose of holding four hearings throughout Marion County is to ensure that everyone has easy access to the meetings, including free parking, and to allow the community plenty of opportunities to give feedback.
The committee is expected to vote on the proposal at the Thursday, May 5, 2005 meeting. That meeting will take place in the City-County Building, 200 E. Washington St., at 6 p.m. The proposal is sponsored by President Steve Talley and Councillors Angela Mansfield, Greg Bowes, Scott Keller and Patrice Abduallah.
