Find Out What’s Happening in Local Government at City/Town Council Meetings

All of Hamilton County’s city and town councils are currently dominated by Republican leaders. And often they are making decisions that affect your quality of life without much public input. The solution is to start attending your local city council meetings, observing the issues and the leaders, keeping an eye out for issues that are important to you, and speaking during public comment times.


Most of our councils meet twice monthly at a local government building. It’s easy to attend the meetings, and you might be surprised how interesting they can be. You’ll be among the first to know about the latest retail and housing developments in your city, and you will start to understand how decisions are made. Often the meetings are streamed online, so if you can’t be there in person, you can still watch the proceedings.


Friendly faces you'll see at City Council meetings. Dr. Anita Joshi represents Carmel's West District and Bill Stuart represents Fishers' South District on their respective City Councils.


 

The HamCo Dems blog is looking for city council correspondents to attend meetings and report on them for the blog. If you’re interested, find more information and sign up here.
