Next ‘Corner’ Provides Guidance to City’s Online Features

Ask Zenzinger about "Ask Arvada"

At Councilwoman Rachel Zenzinger’s next Councilor on Your Corner, the public will learn the ways that they can use the Internet – even during off hours – to keep up with the City’s activities, gather information about relevant events, submit questions and even register requests for service. 

This edition of Councilor On Your Corner will be held 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Standley Lake Library. The event moved to this new site to accommodate a larger crowd. Admission is free, and all members of the public are welcome to attend.  Zenzinger represents Arvada’s District 1, and she will focus on topics most relevant to the east side of Arvada; but anyone with any connections or interest in the city is strongly encouraged to attend. 

The “AskArvada” online feature has won numerous awards, and Arvada’s Chief Information Officer, Michele Hovet, will be on hand during Councilor On Your Corner to answer questions about it. 

Zenzinger will present an update on the ordinances under consideration, development efforts, street improvements, etc. And she will encourage participants to express any concerns, suggestions, or support for current city direction. 

The event is the second of a quarterly series that will continue in January, then again in April and July 2012. 

While her Councilor on Your Corner series is designed to facilitate interaction between Arvada residents and their elected representative, Zenzinger is available to answer questions throughout the year via email at Residents can also follow Zenzinger on Twitter (@Zenzinger_AtoZ) as she describes her activities and observations in connection with her duties as an elected official. 

Participants of Zenzinger’s Councilor on Your Corner are encouraged to log their own “tweets” live during the event and post them to hashtag #copolitics.

 Zenzinger was elected in November 2009 to serve as a member of the Arvada City Council representing District 1, which is generally described as the northeast part of Arvada from approximately 72nd Avenue north to 88th Avenue, and from Sheridan Blvd. west to Kipling; and the area south of Standley Lake to Simms.
