A press release by the Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce
Wednesday, October 6, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lyons Community Church, The Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce invites the entire community to a “Conversation With Our Leaders.” A presentation by Town Administrator Victoria Simonsen and Mayor Julie Van Domelen, followed by a question and answer period.
All members of the Lyons community must adapt to difficult economic conditions in our personal and business lives. Simultaneously, Town government must find ways to balance the services the public needs and expects, against the town’s diminishing ability to pay for those services. We are all in this boat together. So “Conversation With Our Leaders” will be a great opportunity to learn directly from elected and appointed officials about the issues facing the town. It will also be an opportunity for the community to ask questions, express opinions, and help shape a rational and informed discussion during the Town’s upcoming budget cycle.
This event reflects the Chamber’s Mission Statement: “To support a thriving business climate and an enhanced quality of life by promoting the economic, social, cultural, and environmental sustainability of the Lyons area.”
