Town Hall Meetings and Coffee with the Commissioner Dates Announced

District 1 County Commissioner Jeff Bergosh Announces Plans for Town Halls
Starting Tuesday, Feb. 21 from 6-7:30 p.m., District 1 County Commissioner Jeff Bergosh will begin hosting community town hall meetings for citizens.  Held in the Beulah Community at Windy Hill Baptist Church located at 9896 Rebel Rd., Bergosh will discuss OLF-8, master planning for Beulah, drainage, growth management, fire service issues, roadway/intersections safety and many other topics of interest with members of the public who attend. 

This is the first of six town hall style meetings planned for the year rotating between various locations throughout District 1.

Commissioner Bergosh emphasizes the importance of the town halls by saying, “I feel very strongly that I need to be out in the community in the evenings and after typical work hours, hearing from constituents, whether District 1 residents or not, about how I can better serve them and address their needs.”

In addition to the town hall meetings, Commissioner Bergosh will also begin an informal monthly “Coffee with the Commissioner” event where he will meet in the mornings before work hours with constituents.  His kickoff event will take place Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 6:30-7:30 a.m. at Hardee’s located at 2500 Wilde Lake Blvd. in Pensacola.
