Even though not much notice was given, Covington Mayor Ronnie Johnston has set up a town hall meeting this afternoon to discuss recent happenings in the downtown district, primarily involving the Main Street program, the resignation of its director and the involvement of the Chamber of Commerce.
The town hall meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at The Center for Community Preservation and Planning, 2104 Washington St.
There has been a great deal of "he said, she said" surrounding the operation of the Main Street program. In order to hear the city’s version, we suggest you come out this afternoon and visit with the mayor, listen to what he has to say, and feel free to give your opinion.
We appreciate the mayor calling for this meeting; it’s a great way to clear up any misconceptions that might exist.
A strong Main Street program is essential to the city’s future growth and development. We have not met anyone who doesn’t believe that.
Take some time to visit with the mayor and let your voice be a part of a solution, not the confusion.
