Granville County Manager Drew Cummings is planning a series of listening sessions across the county during the fall to share information about what’s going on and to give residents a chance to ask questions and provide feedback.
Cummings will hold a session in each district in the county, beginning Sept. 14 and continuing through mid-November.
The listening sessions will provide the opportunity for members of the public to learn more about county government, the role of the county manager, as well as give feedback about county operations in a less formal atmosphere. Cummings will be joined by members of the Granville County Board of Commissioners and other county staff.
“We have had an eventful year since I began as county manager and I thought it was time to get out in the community and make sure that I’m getting face-to-face time with our residents,” Cummings said in a press statement. “I have spent time in all corners of Granville during my tenure as county manager, but I’m really looking forward to getting to know some of these communities better and to having the time to sit down and talk with our residents. I think it’s critical to my performance that each citizen can inform me about the issues that are truly important to them.”
The listening sessions will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the dates and locations listed below:
Thursday, Sept. 14 at Stem Ruritan Club – 3595 Old NC 75, Stem
