The following announcement was provided by the Lexington League of Women Voters.
Why do most Lexington citizens consider our community very well-run? The answer to this question should be revealed when key municipal departments and their functions are explored in the May 4 First Friday Forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Lexington.
The program will feature a brief presentation entitled, “A Day in the Life of Lexington – Who Keeps Lexington Running?” The photo and video presentation will demonstrate the services and activities of such municipal departments as Fire, Recreation, Community Development, Police, Public Works and the Town Clerk.
Town Manager Carl Valente will lead a panel discussion following the video, with department heads to include: Karen Mullins, Conservation; interim Fire Chief Keith Hoyle; Police Chief Mark Corr; Bill Hadley, director of Public Works; Town Clerk Donna Hooper, and Recreation Director Karen Simmons.
This is the eighth in a series of 2011-2012 First Friday Forums hosted by the League of Women Voters of Lexington to promote awareness and understanding of public policy issues.
