Coffee with mayor heads for LaHacienda

TAYLOR — Mayor Jeffrey Lamarand’s next session of Coffee with the Mayor is scheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 12 at LaHacienda restaurant, 20355 Van Born Road.

The gathering is part of a series of monthly meetings with Lamarand and his constituents. Residents are invited to an informal setting to learn more about the mayor’s plans, ask questions and express concerns.

Each session will take place in the early evening of the second Tuesday of the month at coffee houses, Coney Islands and other restaurants throughout the city.

The business establishments have agreed to provide free coffee; some may provide appetizers or snacks. Space may be limited. Several sessions have drawn packed houses.

Lamarand said his goal is to take the meetings to the residents rather than the residents having to visit the Mayor’s Office. He said the meetings make it easier for residents to share their concerns while promoting local businesses.

For more information call the Mayor’s Office at (734) 374-1450.
