“This town hall is an opportunity for our community to ask questions and get answers. It’s a chance for me to share the exciting projects that the City of Statesboro is currently working on, receive feedback from residents and business owners, and provide a place for open, friendly discourse amongst neighbors.”

For Mayor McCollar, it’s important that the community feel they have a voice and will be heard. “I want our citizens, business owners, and community partners to know that they have a forum to share their concerns, questions, and even praises,” said McCollar. “This is their city and all the work that myself, the Statesboro City Council, and City staff do is ultimately for them.”

Attendees of the town hall event can expect to hear updates on several of the City of Statesboro’s ongoing projects such as infrastructure improvements, the housing rehabilitation program, public transit buses, the Blue Mile streetscape project, and the recently passed referendum on liquor package sales. After providing the project updates, Mayor McCollar will host a question and answer session. Light refreshments will be served.
