Burlington residents will have their next chance to talk to local officials about the COVID-19 pandemic on Wednesday, Jan. 19.

The 11th virtual town hall will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and provide an opportunity to ask questions about the pandemic and impact on city programs and services.

The town hall will be hosted by Mayor Marianne Meed Ward, who will be joined by a panel of local leaders, including representatives from Joseph Brant Hospital, to help answer residents’ questions.

“With an increase in the number of COVID-19 infections in our community, we recognize our city and many of our residents may be experiencing challenges that are new and specific to this wave of the pandemic,” said Meed Ward.

“The COVID-19 telephone town hall will provide our community with the opportunity to hear how we are planning ahead to continue delivering the essential services you rely on. Residents will also have the chance to ask any questions they may have. Let’s continue to support each other with information, updates and resources to get through this wave of the pandemic together.”

Residents who would like to participate in the town hall can do so in the following ways:

  • Register in advance: Burlington residential phone numbers will be randomly selected to be part of the telephone town hall. Residents who would like to be added to the telephone call list can email [email protected] by noon on Jan. 18. If you registered for any of the previous town halls, you are not required to register your phone number a second time.
