City tries more cost-effective notices for citizens.
The City of Janesville is trying a more cost-effective way to invite citizens to its neighborhood listening sessions.
Administrative Intern Dave Grzelak says the city council eliminated paper invitations from its 2009 budget. Instead, the city is posting notices on its website, press releases and in the Park Place News. He says the listening sessions are scheduled so they're about a week after the Park Place News is delivered. That way, it will be fresh in residents' minds, but they will have enough notice to attend.
The system is being tested Thursday at Marshall Middle School. The city will poll residents in attendance to find which method of communication is the most successful.
The listening session starts at 6pm.
