SCHENECTADY — The Schenectady City Council has announced it will host a table at the Schenectady Greenmarket on the second Sunday of each month, beginning Sunday, for the purpose of interacting with and answering questions from residents.
The "coffee with the council" tables will be staffed from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on those Sundays. This week, City Assessor Molly MacElroy will be on hand to remind residents about the upcoming STAR deadline and to answer any questions about property assessment, according to a prepared statement.
Future Sundays will include City department heads and representatives of community-based organizations, who will staff the table on a rotational basis.
"Many times important programs or deadlines are missed by residents," said City Council President Ed Kosiur, in a prepared statement announcing the events. "This will give us another opportunity to spread the word. It will also give residents, who otherwise might not, an opportunity to present concerns and be heard."
Visitors to the booth will receive a coupon for free cup of coffee from a Greenmarket vendor. The Greenmarket is held every Sunday, with the exception of Easter, at Proctors from November through April and in front of City Hall from May through October.
