Beginning July 22, the deadline for agenda submittals to the Board of Works and Safety and Stormwater will be 10 a.m. on the Friday before the meeting. Agenda items for the July 22 meeting will be due Friday, July 19, at 10 a.m.
The Board of Works is the chief administrative body for the City of Goshen. It oversees the day-to-day business of the City, including bids and quotes, contracts, street closures, and personnel issues. Its meetings are held every Monday at 2 p.m. in the Council Chambers, Police and Courts Building, 111 E. Jefferson St.
Mayor Jeremy Stutsman made the announcement this week after talking with each department head about the change. The change of deadline is meant to get agenda items to the Board of Works members sooner so they have more time to read through the packet and, if needed, drive by projects or properties to have a better idea of what is being requested. This will also give the public more opportunity to know what is going to be at the Board of Works meeting. The agenda is posted on the City website at goshenindiana.org/calendar.
Items that come to the City Friday afternoon or Monday morning may be brought as walk-in items if they are time sensitive. Members of the public are encouraged to bring requests before the 10 a.m. deadline on the Friday before the Board of Works meeting. However, walk-in items during Privilege of the Floor will still be heard.
For questions from the public related to the change of deadline, please contact the Mayor’s office at 533.9322 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
