The Barry County Supervisor’s Association’s "Lunch with Leaders" brought together many of the elected officials of Barry County in a face to face environment.
Jim Brown, Hastings Township supervisor and chairman of the event, said to improve and expand the concept, they will include officials from the villages of Middleville, Freeport, Nashville, Woodland and the City of Hastings to the meetings the fourth Tuesday of the designated month at 1:15 p.m. in the Tyden building in Hastings. The meetings will end no later than 2:30 p.m.
The agenda for meetings is a roundtable format where officials tell what’s going on in their jurisdictions. Questions or comments could follow the presentations, Brown said, and
other topics could be brought up at the request of members.
“The basic intent is to keep informed on what is going on, no matter what the location or area in the county. Anything that happens, not matter where, in some way, affects us all,” he said.
The concept and format was discussed and approved at the last supervisors meeting in March.
“As someone once said, ‘the only thing permanent is change,’ and this is just that,” he said.
The name of the event has been changed to “Vision Barry County.”
