County executive is going mobile

Friday, March 21, 2014 - Updated: 10:15 AM


FONDA -- Montgomery County Executive Matthew Ossenfort will host a series of mobile office sessions throughout the county this year to offer residents, officials and others an opportunity to discuss ongoing issues in the local communities.

The first of the sessions will be at the St. Johnsville Community House, 16 Washington St., from 12:30 to 4 p.m., where Ossenfort will be on hand to listen to concerns and answer questions.

"This was something I promised to do during the campaign. I wanted to be accessible to folks that would not be able to make the trip to Fonda," he said.

"I want to be available to answer questions and to show them that I am interested in what they have to say, which is what the office of the executive is here to do."

He added that it is a chance for people to get answers about any concerns they may have on issues in the community or county.

The plan is to do the mobile office sessions in each of the 10 towns that make up Montgomery County, although no time frame has been determined.

Ossenfort said he was planning to hold them once a month but will most likely conduct most of the sessions throughout the summer.

"We are taking it one town at a time," he said. "With the issues that were left by the old government, we have been focused on the big things we had to handle. But we wanted to make sure we got this started."

For more information on the mobile offices, contact the office of the executive at 853-5010.
