City Manager to Discuss Restructured City Hall with Neighborhoods

Covington City Manager Larry Klein is meeting with the city's many neighborhood associations to discuss personally the changes that have been implemented at City Hall. Of particular interest to the neighborhood associations is the change in Ombudsman services (SEE: City Hall Restructuring Includes Second Assistant City Manager, Reassigned Ombudsman). Other significant changes include an overhaul of the code enforcement department (SEE: Code Enforcement Restructured Amid Changes at City Hall) and other position eliminations and additions to create more efficiencies in the local government (SEE: Covington Turns Corner with Structural Changes at City Hall).

Klein has already met with some neighborhood associations including Botany Hills, Eastside, Monte Casino, Old Seminary Square, Peaselburg, Mainstrasse Village, Ritte's East, and South Covington.

Here is the schedule for other neighborhoods with a note from the City:

"Due to the recent changes which have occurred at City Hall regarding the reorganization of some City Departments and City Staff,  the City Manager  and Assistant City Managers will be visiting the neighborhood association meetings to discuss these new changes and how they may affect the way in which the City will be providing certain services to residents and neighborhood groups."
