Albany City Hall on the road

albany city hallThe city of Albany is starting a "City Hall on the Road" series Wednesday (July 20) in which the mayor and city officials will be making themselves available to the public at sites around the city during the evening. Press release blurbage:

"Since becoming Mayor, I've attended dozens of neighborhood and other public meetings, and it has become clear that Albany residents would like the opportunity to address their concerns one-on-one with administration officials at a time that is convenient for them," said Mayor Sheehan. "Instead of asking people to always come to City Hall during business hours, we will make ourselves available to address issues, answer questions about things like building permits and job opportunities, as well as provide help filling out various forms."
Do you need a license for your dog? Do you need an inspection or permit from the Department of Buildings and Regulatory Compliance? Are you curious about grant programs that may be available to you as a homeowner? Are you interested in speaking to someone in the Fire Department about the path to becoming a firefighter? City "experts" will be there to answer these and any other questions you may have.

The chance to meet with officials is first-come, first-serve. Here's the site schedule...

Each event is 5:30 pm-7 pm.

Wednesday, July 20: Arbor Hill Community Center, 50 Lark St. Albany, 12210

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
