Help determine Boyne City’s future

boyne city logoPeople interested in the future of Boyne City’s economy, infrastructure, public works and general welfare are invited to attend the city-wide goal-setting session at 6 p.m. on Thursday Jan. 9 in the Parish Hall at St. Matthew Catholic Church located at 1303 Boyne Ave./M-75 South.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to join community leaders in an open forum that is your opportunity to share suggestions, ask questions, hear what your fellow citizens think and receive updates on previously established goals.
Input received at this meeting will assist the Boyne City Commission and other Boyne City boards and commissions in determining the short-term and long-term goals for our community.
These goals will give the City Commission and staff direction on the community’s priorities and where to focus the city’s resources to continue moving in a positive, progressive direction.
The last public goal setting session was in January of 2012.
An online survey was also available for citizens as another avenue of communication for those who were not able to attend the meeting.
All of the information comments received was pulled together resulting in the adopted 2012 goals.
Whether you have suggestions you want to share or are interested in hearing what your fellow citizens have to say, you are encouraged to attend.
If you are not able to attend you may still submit suggestions to:
City of Boyne City, 319 North Lake St., Boyne City, MI 49712 or by e-mailing bbrooks@boynecity.com or via the upcoming online survey—details to follow.
For additional information or if you have questions, contact City Hall (231) 582-6597.
