Mayor to begin monthly Curbside Chats

Have you ever wanted to sit down and talk with the mayor one-on-one?

Do you have a question about recycling, trash collection, road conditions or public safety?

Maybe you have an idea for the parks department?

Once a month, Mayor Matt Nicholson and different department heads will take time to meet with the public in what Nicholson has coined Curbside Chats.

The gatherings will take place at local parks with the purpose of fostering conversations, sparking ideas, and getting to know each other better.Nicholson and Chad Dixon, director of Seymour Department of Public Works, will kick the chats off at 6 p.m. April 28 at Burkhart Plaza (next to the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce building). At 6 p.m. on May 24 at the Shields Park shelter house, Nicholson will be joined by Jeremy Gray, city building commissioner.

The rest of the schedule will be:

  • June 13 - 11:30 am, at the Mellencamp Mural – Nicholson and Jarin Gladstein, director of Seymour Water Pollution Control
  • July 12 - 6:00 pm, at the Gaiser Park shelter house – Nicholson and Seymour Police Chief Bryant Lucas
  • August 18 - 7:00 am, at Crossroads Park – Nicholson and Seymour Fire Chief Brad Lucas
  • September 14 - 6:00 pm, at Westside Park – Nicholson and Stacy Findley, director of Seymour Parks and Recreation.
