PRESCOTT — Starting in November, Prescott residents will have an opportunity to talk over their city-related issues with new City Manager Michael Lamar.

Lamar, who started as Prescott’s city manager Oct. 10, announced this week that he plans to meet with residents one-on-one twice a month at the Prescott Public Library.

“Starting in November, the first and third Wednesday of the month – from 4 to 6 p.m. – I’m going have open office hours to meet with anybody from the public who has any issues that they’d like to share regarding city government,” Lamar told the Prescott City Council Tuesday, Oct. 25.

“Anybody and everybody can come and discuss issues,” Lamar said Friday, Oct. 21. He added that people interested in participating will be able to go to the library’s circulation desk and ask to talk to him.

The Prescott Public Library is located at 215 E. Goodwin St.

Lamar, who previously worked as county manager in Morgan County, Georgia, said he conducted similar meetings there.

“When I first got there, I had a lot of folks, but it kind of died down,” he said. Still, he said he continued the meetings to give local residents the option of meeting with him.
