Meet, and greet

Thu, 01/04/2018 - 8:30pm

The Block Island Town Council is hosting an informal public meet and greet with Ed Roberge, the new Town Manager, at The Barn at the Spring House on Monday Jan. 8 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will be a cash bar and light hors d’oeuvres.

Also, the Town Council will be holding a work session with Roberge on Wednesday, Jan. 10, at 4 p.m., when the Council will outline what it feels are the top priorities for the island during the coming months, and perhaps beyond. (See related story on page one.)

If you can’t make the meet and greet on Monday, the work session on Wednesday will be another excellent opportunity to meet the new town manager and express your own opinions on what the town needs to focus on in 2018 and beyond.

Just as an FYI, The Barn will remain open after the event. If anyone would like to stay for dinner, please contact The Barn directly to make a reservation at 466-5844 and leave a message. The Barn will get back to you.

But take a few minutes to meet Ed Roberge, and put a bug in his ear about what you feel is important.
