Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger has kicked off his tenure with a series of community meetings, one in each county commission district, to be held over a period of seven weeks. The public is invited, as are local elected officials. Apparently the sessions can get preachy when the latter gets involved.
Two meetings are scheduled for next week: on Monday, Feb. 7, at East Hamilton School, and on Tuesday, Feb. 8, at East Ridge Middle School. Both start at 6:00 p.m. More information can be found at www.hamiltontn.gov/countyconversations or by calling (423) 209-6109.
