Every month on the first Monday, Mayor Heartwell is open to all questions sent in during his live on-air show "City Connection." 

This month, on the eve of the primary elections, Mayor Heartwell talked about what's on our local ballots. He also answered Rapidian intern Ashley Borres' question about his perspective on the new Uber transportation service in town, and other sharing economy trends in our area. On Monday, August 4 at 5:00 p.m. the mayor responded to this and other citizen concerns about fireworks safety within the city and potholes, live on GRTV.

The show is aired on the first Monday of each month on GRTV, Channel 24 on Comcast, as well as live-streaming right here on The Rapidian.

For 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.
