City Council to host third Chit, Chat & Chew Thursday

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, August 21, 2018

SALISBURY — The Salisbury City Council and city administrators will host the third Chit, Chat & Chew town-hall meeting Thursday.

The meeting is for residents in the southwest area of the city, including the Lincoln Heights, King’s Forest, Matika Village and Forest Glen neighborhoods.

Chit, Chat & Chew town halls started after requests from council members and residents who wanted increased engagement beyond City Council meetings’ public-comment period.

Residents can talk about any topic they want.

The series has been separated into nine parts to allow targeted discussions that may address similar needs and concerns, like code enforcement, leaf collection and road conditions. The target areas are based on natural barriers, roads, population distribution and median income.

“Recognizing that each neighborhood in our city has its own set of challenges and triumphs,” said Anne Little, the city’s human relations manager, “Chit, Chat & Chew is an opportunity to have some of those challenges addressed or to tout their community accomplishments and perhaps provide support to others in the room. This event is not only an opportunity for Salisburians to interact with their elected officials but also with their neighbors in an informal setting.”

Chit, Chat & Chew will be at Destiny City Church, 2324 S. Main St. A light dinner will begin at 5:15 p.m. The town hall will begin at 5:45 p.m.
