Our Town asked candidates five questions focused on the challenges the Silverton City Council will face over the next four years. The questions, below, are each identified by a key word.
1. FUNDING: How will we fund needed construction, reconstruction and major repairs to our infrastructure? Most of the city’s facilities are aging and in urgent need of replacement or repair. Where will the money come from?
2. COOPERATION: How can the elected officials work together in a more cooperative and efficient manner? Too often, our council meetings are contentious and go late into the night. How will the new council improve this situation? What can individual councilors do about this issue?
