Sixth Annual “State of the Fifth District” Set for January 31st – Residents To Name “Top Ten Items City Should Accomplish in 2012”

Fifth District Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske today announced her sixth annual “State of the Fifth District” will be organized differently this year in order to give residents a chance to identify the top ten items the City should accomplish in 2012.

“In addition to recapping what has been accomplished in the past year at this event,” says Councilwoman Schipske, “I think we need to provide residents the chance to speak up and help identify the top ten items they would like the City to accomplish in 2012.”

The annual event will be held beginning at 6:30 pm at the El Dorado Community Center, 2800 Studebaker. City Manager Pat West and Councilwoman Schipske will present a brief overview of what the city accomplished in 2011 and discuss some of the “big ticket items” that will be coming before the Council in 2012.

“I will also review where infrastructure – sidewalks, curbs, and streets – will be repaired in the 5th District,” notes Schipske.

After the reviews, we will ask participants to identify 10 items they would like the city council to accomplish in 2012. That list will be published on Councilwoman Schipske’s blog and sent to the Mayor and other members of the City Council.

This good government event is open to the public.
