Mayor Bliss and Allison Farole to discuss city's disaster and emergency readiness programs
Underwriting support from:

Every month, Mayor Bliss or a representative from the city will be open to all questions sent in during or in anticipation of her live on-air show "City Connection." The mayor will respond to citizen questions submitted by calling in, emailingtweeting or just posting a question in the comments section at the bottom of the article page. This month, Mayor Bliss is joined by Grand Rapids' brand new Emergency Manager Allison Farole. Mayor Bliss and Farole, who assumed her position in September of last year, will talk about the city's disaster and emergency readiness programs as well as a variety of other issues facing the city today.

For over 18 years, the mayors of Grand Rapids have hosted City Connection, a monthly, live call-in show on GRTV’s Livewire, Comcast channel 24. Mayor John Logie started the program in 1992 as a way to share mayoral perspective with Grand Rapidians and to bring a little more transparency to local government. City Connection is an opportunity to interact directly with one of our city’s top elected officials.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
