Special guest sits in on South Bend neighborhood meeting
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Mayor Pete Buttigieg attended the city’s monthly Northeast Neigborhood Council meeting on Monday for the third time since becoming mayor.
“It's kind of like I'm updating my boss, the people here are my boss," said Buttigieg.
"For him to come and to listen to what he has to say was just kinda great," said Marguerit Taylor, the council's vice president.
Monday, Taylor and several other council members, took full advantage of Mayor Pete's third appearance at their meeting.
LimeBike was a popular topic at Monday’s meeting, and so was "Smart Streets."
“You can't do my job from behind the desk and so it does a lot of good when I'm able to be on the ground with neighborhood associations sharing information,: said Buttigieg.
Mayor Pete says he’ll take some of the concerns presented Monday, like issues with certain streets, straight to other members of his team.
“Going to take back to engineering team ask what else we can be dong whether signs design anything we can do to make neighborhood better off I always like to go away with a little homework and that’s what I got tonight," said Buttigieg.
