Decatur residents who want to connect with their city officials but can’t make the meetings have a new opportunity to do so.

Starting March 27 the city is holding a series of “Virtual Town Hall” meetings with city officials. The March 27 meeting features Mayor Patti Garrett and begins at 7 p.m.

“The Mayor will speak for approximately 15-20 minutes on the topic of Decatur’s commitment to being a just, welcoming, equitable, inclusive and compassionate city and the activities and efforts around that commitment,” a press release from the city says. “The community is invited to tune in to watch and listen and will be able and encouraged to submit questions related to the topic live via Twitter, Facebook, email, or phone.”
