City, county leaders to answer public’s questions

NATCHEZ — City and county leaders know you have questions, and they are ready and willing to give answers.

Leaders from the Adams County Board of Supervisors and the City of Natchez will sit down together from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday for a roundtable discussion of issues facing the community.

The event is organized and will be moderated by the Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce.

“I had somebody from both the city and county say they had done this in the past, individually, but both wanted someone to put them together,” Chamber President and CEO Debbie Hudson said.

The chamber has compiled a list of questions submitted by its members and area residents, and chamber member Stephanie Hutchins will serve as moderator.

The event will also include 15 to 20 minutes in which members of the public in attendance can ask questions.

“We are hoping people will take advantage of this opportunity,” Hudson said. “You can’t criticize if you aren’t going to help with the solution.”

Hudson said she expected all members of the board of aldermen and supervisors to be in attendance with the exception of S.E. “Spanky” Felter and Mark Fortenbery, who both had prior commitments.

Mayor Jake Middleton will also be present.

The moderator will limit the time each elected official has to answer questions to prevent the event from running past 7:30 p.m.

“It’s in communication that we all learn to work together,” Hudson said. “We are not pointing fingers.”
