City Council Meeting Cancelled on Tuesday
The January 1 city council meetings is cancelled for the New Year holidays. The public is invited to attend the annual open forum on January 15. This year's format is designed to generate ideas from the public about developing innovative technology solutiions to everyday problems (see hackathon item below). For information about council meetings and agendas, call the City Clerk’s Office at 303-651-8649 or visit www.ci.longmont.co.us/city_council.
There Should be an App for That
Calling all hackers! The City will host the first Longmont community hackathon in March to develop technological solutions to everyday problems. But first we need to identify the issues to work on. The city council is inviting the public to share ideas and help develop a list of apps that can make our lives easier at 7 pm on Tuesday, January 15, in the Longmont Civic Center at 350 Kimbark Street. Those suggestions will be used to challenge local techies to spend a marathon weekend developing solutions to benefit our community. Would you like an app to help you find bicycle parking? Maybe you want to find all the public art in Longmont. Or perhaps you’d like to know what fresh produce is for sale this week at the farmers’ market. Whatever your ideas, bring them to this open forum for consideration.
