Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore announced Wednesday the establishment of the Mayor’s Office of Community Outreach.
The office will use existing resources to dedicate itself to working with constituents and community groups so that their needs are addressed, according to a press release. It will also help ensure that city government and particularly the mayor’s office remains available and accessible to the constituents it serves.
“I want city government to reach out to everyone,” Moore said in the release. “This office will give citizens an avenue to voice their concerns and suggestions on improvements of city services. By working with residents and community organizations we will develop proactive methods to resolve community issues. Improving the quality of life for all residents means listening to their concerns. It also means keeping residents informed of city services while working to resolve any issues they may be facing.”
The primary functions of newly created office include: Collaborating with citizens and community groups to provide information to residents on city services and to quickly address community issues and concerns; interfacing with city departments to facilitate complaint resolution in a timely and efficient manner; and developing community outreach projects and organizing neighborhood meetings to enhance the lives of the citizens of Jeffersonville.
Jeffersonville’s Public Works Coordinator Rick Lovan will also serve as the coordinator for the office of community outreach.
