Commissioners, county directors plan March community meetings

The Chelan County team is coming to a community near you.

In March, Chelan County commissioners and a variety of department directors will hold a series of community-led discussions in each of the three districts commissioners represent.

The community events will be:

District 2: 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6, at Leavenworth Fire Hall, 228 Chumstick Highway. Commissioner Shon Smith will host the meeting.

District 3: 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, at Chelan City Hall, 135 E. Johnson Ave. Commissioner Tiffany Gering will host the meeting.

District 1: 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, at Wenatchee High School (new commons area), 1101 Millerdale Ave. Commissioner Kevin Overbay will host the meeting.

Joining the discussions will be Chelan County Sheriff Mike Morrison and county directors representing the following departments: Community Development, Public Works, Natural Resources, Economic Services and the Regional Justice Center. Each of the meetings will have different directors attending.

“The commissioners and department directors will not present any presentations but rather will open up the community-led discussions with questions from the public,” said Jill FitzSimmons, public information officer for Chelan County. “It is our hope that these meetings focus on the individual concerns of the people living in each district. It’s an opportunity for the public to drive the conversations.”

In the past, each of the commissioners has hosted meetings in their districts throughout the year. This year, the county is planning a joint outreach effort, with individual district meetings planned in March and then again in September.

“If we find we need more than 90 minutes, or people would like a more formal approach to the meetings, we will adjust for those September meetings,” FitzSimmons said. “If you have a topic you’d like to hear more about, or a concern or question, I encourage you to attend.”

The three-member Board of County Commissioners each represent a district in Chelan County. District 1, represented by Commissioner Kevin Overbay, consists of the Malaga area and most of Wenatchee. District 2, represented by Commissioner Shon Smith, consists of parts of the Sunnyslope area north to Leavenworth, Plain, Lake Wenatchee and the northern parts of the county. District 3, represented by Commissioner Tiffany Gering, consists of parts of the Sunnyslope area west to the Entiat, Chelan and Manson areas. The district maps are available on the county website.
