Coffee With The Manager A Terrific Community Service

I attended my first Coffee With The Manager, Steve Feller, on Tuesday morning at Uptown Coffee.   About 25 residents were in attendance and the conversation was wide-ranging, taking in everything from nuisance properties to the municipal pool and the recent power outage.  The manager and his colleagues from the planning and building departments listened attentively and answered residents' questions to the best of their ability.  As is so often the case, connections were made and it made a world of difference to be able to put a face to a name.

My only hope is that the next coffee is scheduled before October!  That's the date that was mentioned and this is far too useful a community service to be held but twice a year.
