Council midterm drop-in town hall on Main Street Friday

Mayor Taylor Bachrach and town council are hosting a sidewalk town hall Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A sidewalk town hall is being hosted by Smithers’ mayor and council Friday.

They will be meeting at Second Avenue and Main Street by Bugwood Bean to issue a midterm report card. It has been two years since residents elected Mayor Taylor Bachrach to a second term, and chose a council that is half made up of first-term members.

Topics to be discussed include an update on council’s strategic priorities which include airport and soccer field upgrades, planning for a new arts and culture building, food security, enhancing the town’s energy profile, and supporting small business.

Everyone is invited to check out the tabletop display and ask questions of their municipal representatives.
