The City of Ashland will host a Town Hall Gathering on Monday, January 30, 2023, 5:30 p.m. at the Historic Armory in Ashland. The Armory is located at 208 Oak St. The Mayor will present the State of the City Address at 6 p.m., which will be televised live on Ashland Home Net Channel 9, Charter Spectrum RVTV 180 Prime, or streaming live online by going to rvtv.sou.edu and clicking on the RVTV Prime button.
The City Council has established a priority list for the upcoming biennium and is seeking feedback from the community. Following the State of the City Address, please join the Mayor, Council members and City staff to help identify community priorities for the upcoming 2023-2025 Biennium budget process.
The Town Hall will be a time for small group discussions with elected officials and staff, and the opportunity for the public to vote individually on top community priorities and objectives. Voting will take place through an approach called Dot-Voting. Dot-Voting makes the voting process transparent and immediately visible as the Town Hall meeting progresses.
Mark your calendar for this important meeting at 5:30 p.m. on January 30. Details online, including the 2023-2025 Community Priorities and Objectives list, at ashland.or.us/COAtownhall. View the City’s newly adopted Vision and Value statements, which are the foundation for the 2023-2025 Community Priorities and Objectives.
If you are unable to attend the Town Hall, online participation through Dot-Voting will be available Monday, January 30 through Friday, February 3. A link will be provided on the Town Hall page, ashland.or.us/COAtownhall, as of January 30.
All results from the Town Hall Meeting, and online voting, will be tabulated and shared on the City website in late February 2023. The results will provide valuable input for City Council and the Citizens Budget Committee for next steps with the 2023-2025 Biennial Budget.
We look forward to seeing you--- “We are better together!”
