While township officials have discussed and strategized ways to be more effective in communicating with each other during any natural disasters in the future, Mayor Ken Short is now asking for residents to weigh in.
An area of major concern from the residents after Hurricane Sandy was communication, and Short will host a meeting to receive feedback on how to best provide strong communication avenues to the public.
Short is asking for volunteers to review the township's communication efforts throughout the weeks following the storm.
"The intent is to provide better and more reliable communication channels between the township and residents," Short said in an email to Patch. "All residents that are genuinely interested and can provide constructive suggestions about improving our communication efforts are invited to attend and take part in an open discussion."
The meeting will be held at the Washington Township Municipal Building at 6 p.m. on Dec. 12. Interested residents are asked to email Short at firstname.lastname@example.org.
