At the Monday council meeting, Hastings Mayor David Tossava said a member had asked for a retreat about a month ago, and with changes in the city coming up, a new city manager and new clerk/treasurer, they have decided to have one.
It will be Oct. 18 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the YMCA Camp on Iroquois Trail at Algonquin Lake. The topic will be strategic planning, with Hastings Planner Rebecca Harvey participating.
“Anybody with ideas about strategic planning, write them down,” Tossava told council members.
“Anyhow, it’s going to be an open affair, anybody wants to come that’s fine…it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
