One year after Colorado Springs transitioned from a city manager form of government to a so-called strong mayor model, a distinguished panel of experts, with a variety of views on the topic, will lead a wide-ranging community discussion about how well the new system is working and what, if anything, might be done to make it work better. Audience participation will also be encouraged.
This isn’t a debate about the current mayor, but about the new system under which he and City Council are now operating, with one year’s experience under their belts. Is it a plus? Or is it a minus? What appears to be working? What doesn’t? What are the new system’s strengths? What are its weaknesses? What steps, if any, might be taken to resolve any problems? And when should we take them?
These and other questions will be constructively explored in a 90 minute program that includes a moderated panel discussion and audience participation. A reception, featuring light food fare and cash bar, takes place from 5:00 to 5:30 PM. Formal program begins promptly at 5:30.
