The City of Dalton has set up another way for Dalton residents to communicate directly with its elected officials and city staff with a new dedicated email address for citizen comments.
Anyone with a comment that they would like to send to city leaders can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the message will be forwarded to the Mayor and Council or any other appropriate city staff.
The public comment session of the June 15th meeting of Dalton’s Mayor and Council lasted nearly two hours with area residents addressing the council on a number of different issues including the statue of Confederate General Joseph Johnston in downtown. Due to social distancing measures enacted by the city in response to the COVID 19 pandemic there was only seating in the council chamber for about 25 residents, so many people waiting to make their comments had to wait standing in line outside of the chamber.
While there will still be a time set aside in upcoming meetings of the council for public comments, the email@example.com email address has been set up to give residents another way to send their comments to the council members without having to wait in line.
The next meeting of the Mayor and Council is scheduled for Monday, July 6, at 6 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers.
