The Hastings City Council will go on a retreat Thursday, Oct. 18 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the YMCA Camp at Algonquin Lake.
The event gives the council a chance to meet in a more relaxed atmosphere and brainstorm with no agenda. The topic will be strategic planning, but the evening, organized and planned by Hastings City Planner Rebecca Harvey, includes games and exercises just for the fun of it.
“This is an open affair,” Mayor David Tossava said. “The public can stop by. It should be fun. Rebecca is excited about it; we’re looking forward to it.”
