HARTFORD — So … you’re not pleased with many services in the city. And you think city officials could do more. Well, now is your chance to have a direct impact on how the city is run.
Mayor Pedro Segarra on Thursday invited Hartford residents to an information session to learn about serving on a Board or Commission through a program called Accountability. Collaboration. Transparency.
ACT for Hartford is a partnership between the Hartford and Leadership Greater Hartford, and it is focused on promoting accountability, collaboration and transparency in city government through the work of Boards and Commission, city officials said.
“If Hartford residents can assist in developing local policies that eliminate hunger, help grandparents raise their grandchildren, assist persons with disabilities, or any number of other issues, they should consider becoming a candidate for one of our 33 active Boards and Commissions,” Segarra said.
The session will be held on Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012 at Council Chambers, 2nd floor, Municipal Building, 550 Main St., Hartford from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The following Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Hartford residents will have the opportunity to participate in a Boards and Commissions Fair at the Center for Contemporary Culture in the Hartford Public Library, 500 Main Street in Hartford.
