Mayor Donchez Announces Open Door Policy
Mayor Bob Donchez announced
today that he will hold his second open-door policy
on March 10, 2014, so residents of the city can meet
with him one-on-one.
“It is my belief
that government should be accessible, open and responsive
to the concerns of its constituents. My open door
policy gives Bethlehem residents the opportunity to
come in, sit down, and discuss concerns or offer suggestions
about the City directly with their Mayor,” Mayor
Donchez said. “I truly believe that there are
a lot of great ideas held by our residents and I want
to hear them.”
The Mayor will open
his door to the public on the second Monday of each
month, beginning from 9:00 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from
1-3 p.m. The discussions will be 15 minutes in length
and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors
will open up at 9:00 a.m. and interested individuals
will be asked to sign in and wait in the 2nd Floor
Lobby until their allotted time. Residents may only
sign-in once per month, and are invited to return
each month if they wish.
The Mayor’s Office
is located at 10 East Church Street, Bethlehem, PA
18018 on the 2nd Floor of Building B.

City of Bethlehem: POTHOLE
24, 2014)-- Mayor Bob Donchez announced today that
due to the severity of the winter, and the large number
of potholes the City will institute the hotline number.
Please keep in mind,
since we are only in February; with melting, more
snow expected, other winter operations, and the lack
of appropriate material this time of year repairing
potholes will be done with temporary material until
final repairs can begin in late March. All pothole
locations will be logged for follow up action as quickly
as weather and resource allow.
Thank you for your cooperation.
