Another first for Laurens will take place on Tuesday, March 15.
Laurens Mayor, Nathan Senn, will take to the stage at the Historic Capitol Theatre in downtown Laurens to provide a report on the current condition of Laurens and the priorities for the coming year.
The State of the City Address will start 6:00 pm. Invitations were sent to special guests and individuals who will be recognized. Any additional seats available will be open to the public. The event will be livestreamed to the public.
“Just as the President and Governor do, I would like to present my agenda for the coming year to the community in advance of our budget negotiations which will begin in March/April,” said Mayor Senn.
After the State of the City address, Mayor Senn is planning to schedule some town hall meetings in the coming months to get community feedback. He thought it would be appropriate to first share some of the initiatives that have already begun and provide a bit of context about the city’s current situation.
“I hope the event will provide some clarity about where we spend, where we are, and where we have the potential to go,” said Mayor Senn.
In keeping with traditional “state of” events, the mayor will also recognize individuals who have provided exemplary service to the community, and who deserve the recognition of our city in Laurens County as a whole.
