Brooklyn Park Debuts City Hall on the Go
After the city received feedback that getting to city meetings and events can be tough when you have a job and kids, the city created City Hall on the Go to make city offices more accessible. The first City Hall on the Go was Thursday night in Hartkopf Park.
“This is a great opportunity for the community to come together and learn about the inner workings of the community,” said Lisa Jacobson, city council member.
“We have a lot of kids, a lot of games, and a lot of activities,” added Wynfred Russell, city council member.
Brooklyn Park received feedback that getting to city meetings and events was just too tough for people who might have conflicting schedules. Jobs and kid extracurricular activities sometimes got in the way of attending an event. So, the city created City Hall on the Go as a way to make city services and information more mobile. Besides city services, entities like Hennepin County Library, Brooklyn Park Police and Fire all set up booths as well.
“I thought it was very cool seeing when your places are going to be accessed because I had no idea,” said Victoria Hintzman, who attended the event.
If you missed Thursday night’s event, there are two other city halls on the go planned this summer in Oak Grove Park and Norwood Park.
