Ashby includes residents in decision-making

excerpted from Fergus Falls Daily Journal, 1-2-07

Many communities talk about open communication between residents and city government, but Ashby takes extra steps to see that this takes place. A prime example is the Ashby City Council holding an open forum prior to each council meeting.

“People are invited to discuss their issues with two councilmembers at this meeting,” Ashby Mayor Tom Grover said. “The idea is to provide a better line of communication between the public and the council. This allows people to voice their concerns without having to attend a full council meeting.”

Council meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month. The open forum starts at 6:30 p.m. prior to each council meeting.
