Albany City Hall on the Road 2018 summer/fall

Albany City Hall from east Capitol lawn 2014 v2

The city of Albany is starting a new round of "City Hall on the Road" events in the evening at various locations in the evening starting in August. The full schedule is below.

Press release blurbage:

These events are designed to give residents the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Mayor Sheehan and City officials, and to access City services after-hours and closer to home. ...
Whether you need a dog license, a recycling bin, an inspection or permit from the Department of Buildings and Regulatory Compliance, or are curious about grant programs that may be available to residents and business owners, City experts will be on hand to answer these and any other questions you may have. Mayor Sheehan and City officials will be available for one-on-one meetings on a first-come, first-serve basis.

That link above includes a list of the the departments and info that will be available.

We would just add that is also a good opportunity to bring up a complaint you might have. Complaining often gets a bad rap, but if you want the place you live to work better / be better / be different, you should say something. (And we should all be thankful to people who take the time to speak up.) If you can organize your neighbors to work out some consensus about a better direction, that's helpful, too. (And, yep, sometimes complaints don't get responses or action. But if they don't, it's a first step.)

While we're on topic, other places to bring up your complaints: with your Common Council member (that link includes a list with contact info) and/or your neighborhood association.

OK, here's the schedule...

Each event is from 5:30-7 pm.

Wednesday, August 1: Eagle Point Elementary School, 1044 Western Ave., Albany, NY 12203

Wednesday, August 22: Tony Clement Center for Education, 395 Elk St., Albany, NY 12206

Tuesday, September 18: North Albany American Legion Post 1610 , 35 North 1st Street, Albany, NY 12204

Tuesday, October 2: Ancient Order of Hibernians Hall, 375 Ontario Street, Albany, NY 12208

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
