I received some good feedback last week from a resident. It is clear I’m not doing as good a job communicating as I hoped. The criticism was Black Diamond councillors do not engage with residents online as much or as well as Turner Valley’s councillors. I’ll try to remedy that by posting on Facebook more often.
I’ve also heard that many would like to follow Town business and have an interest in what Black Diamond Council is discussing but either forget or can’t find the agendas. I’m happy to post the agendas here on my blog and hopefully that makes it easier for people to find them.
It would be so nice to see more people at council meetings. Rarely does anyone show up and when they do it’s because they are unhappy with something Council has done or is doing. From a councillor’s perspective, this is difficult. I see a lot of opinions on Facebook but I don’t often get an opportunity to talk face to face with constituents. I’d like more discussion. I’d like to present your opinions to the rest of council. I’d be thrilled to talk to you.
Here is a copy of the next Black Diamond Council meeting agenda. This meeting will be Wednesday, October 16 at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers (downstairs at the Town of Black Diamond Municipal Office). Hope to see you there and as always, if you want to reach me you can email, call or text. My information is on my contact page.
