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, The Rapidian's intern CeNique Yeldell asked the mayor his thoughts on the 12 point plan for our police force. In response to citizen concerns about police brutality, transparency, profiling and community relations, the City has developed a 12 point plan to address police/community relations. The mayor answered her question and other citizen questions on Monday February 2, on GRTV Channel 24. He also addressed questions about fracking, city parks, snow plowing and bike lanes.

You can add your own questions each month by calling in, emailingtweeting or just posting a question in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

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.

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.
