The mayor is in

Chardon Mayor Phil King says he will continue to host monthly "town hall" meetings after his inaugural session at the log cabin on the square Wednesday night.

A press release about the meetings invited residents and business owners to come share any issues, concerns or suggestions, or to ask questions of the mayor.

"There were eight people that showed, which is really encouraging for the first one," King said, noting that they weren't the usual residents that faithfully attend City Council meetings.

Discussion topics ranged from sidewalks to zoning, landscaping to ballot issues. The informal setting with chairs arranged in a circle may have put attendees at ease.

"I thought it was pretty cool," King said.

The meetings are scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month.
