Mayor Donchez Announces Open Door Policy for 2015January 7, 2015

Mayor Bob Donchez announced today that he will continue to hold his open-door policy throughout the year of 2015, 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.
