Longview, TX — The city of Longview will be talking trash with residents today.
The city’s Facebook page will be set up to take comments and have staff members answer questions about proposed changes to the sanitation service from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
City spokesman Shawn Hara said the purpose of the Facebook exchange is to expand the discussion about the the proposed sanitation plan beyond public hearings.
“The purpose of the chat will be to provide an additional opportunity to answer questions about the simplified collection proposal, perhaps in a format that is more convenient for residents than coming to City Hall,” he said.
The city has held two informational meetings at City Hall, and another is scheduled 5:30 p.m. July 25.
Facebook questions will be answered by city staff members, including Hara, Sanitation Manager Dwayne Archer and Re-cycling Coordinator David Simmons.
