The Colorado Department of Transportation will host six telephone town hall meetings for residents across Colorado this month.
Between June 5 and June 13, residents in all 64 counties will be called at random through an automated system and invited to take part in a regional town hall, according to a news release from CDOT. Coloradans who choose to join the conversation can listen in and also express their thoughts to their transportation commissioner and key CDOT personnel on how the Department is addressing the state's transportation needs, important projects or initiatives and funding.
"It allows everyone to take a look at what we've accomplished so far to make sure we're all moving together in the right direction," CDOT Executive Director Shailen Bhatt said in the release. "It also gives us the opportunity to hear from people on how best to invest our limited funds and the projects they think should be prioritized."
The interactive calls will reach out to roughly 350,000 people statewide. After answering the phone, the call will be automatically connected to the meeting. Anyone who does not receive a call but wants to participate can dial in, toll-free, at (877) 229-8493, PIN 112034.
The town hall for Weld County residents is slated for 5:30 p.m. June 13. It also will include residents from Cheyenne, Elbert, Kit Carson, Larimer, Lincoln, Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington and Yuma counties.
