“As Mayor, I have worked to make our government open, transparent and accessible to all residents; and this special outreach event continues this effort by offering information about the many township services that are available to our citizens,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly A. Yaede.
Late last year, Hamilton Township was 1 of 16 local governments across the country to be named a “Citizen Engaged Community” for 2012-2014 by the Public Technology Institute, a national technology organization serving cities and counties. Hamilton was recognized for its commitment to engaging citizens through a variety of communication systems, including web-based and mobile technology.
“For those who will be unable to attend, I invite them and all of our residents to frequently visit our Township website, follow us on Facebook or Twitter, sign up for our free E-mail Newsletters or simply contact us through the HamStat Call Center so that they can remain informed and engaged in our community,” says Mayor Yaede.
