With no shortage of hot topics in Oak Creek, city aldermen are setting up listening sessions to answer questions and gather input from the public.
Alderman Tom Michalski will host such a meeting from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 9, while Alderman Dan Jakubczyk has scheduled a listening session for 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 16.
Both meetings will be held in the council chambers of Oak Creek City Hall, 8640 S. Howell Ave. All residents are invited to attend.
Council members are facing big votes later this spring on plans for the Drexel Town Square development project. A proposed Meijer store is one aspect of the development that has attracted strong opposition.
Jakubczyk is also bidding for re-election against challenger Steven Kurkowski. Both candidates advanced out of the primary and will be on the ballot in the April 2 election.
Alderman Dan Bukiewicz has also announced a listening session for 6 to 8 p.m. March 4 at the Oak Creek Public Library, 8620 S. Howell Ave.
