More than 100 attend town hall
November 1, 2012
About 115 residents armed with electronic voting clickers responded to real-time poll questions at the annual town hall meeting held Oct. 29 at The Golf Club at Newcastle.
City Manager Rob Wyman presented information about the 2013 preliminary budget and development in the city, then Newcastle Police Chief Melinda Irvine offered information on community safety and crime prevention.
The evening ended with a question-and-answer session, where topics discussed included annexation to Bellevue, how the City Council prioritizes the city’s capital projects and the development of the Mutual Materials site.
The meeting was well attended, with nearly every seat full. In fact, the city ran out of clickers to hand out to residents.
