Vibrant Batavia kicks off 'Coffee Talk' series
Submitted by Howard Owens on September 28, 2013 - 7:13pm
The first of four planned "Coffee Talk" events sponsored by Vibrant Batavia was held this morning at City Hall. The events are designed to collect feedback on what residents think needs to be done to improve life in Batavia and identify potential neighborhood leaders. Today's event was focused on residents from the Northside.

William Gregory, of State Street, pictured below, said he came out to the event this morning because he's concerned about his commmunity.
"I think it would be nice to know more of my neighbors and hopefully we can solve some of the issues we have," Gregory said.
The next Coffee Talk is from 10 a.m. to noon, Oct. 5, at Williams Park.

Mary, thats not true, no one is ever stuck anywhere.... Its just not within your comfort zone to leave. Otherwise it wouldn't be an excuse. In all the cases you pointed out, they city did not listen, until enough people spoke up and spoke out.
Apathy is what leads city leadership to begin to do things on their own rather than listen to it's public. So having nothing to say and using apathy as an excuse contributes to the problem and undermines any steps towards a solution like this one.
As the old saying goes you actions dictate results....
And the other old saw that applies here You get the Govt that you deserve.
