The City of Fort Lauderdale host several Telephone Town Hall Meetings each calendar year.  Each Telephone Town Hall Meeting allows the City to build community by engaging our neighbors and providing a free and convenient forum for them to share their ideas and comments with us over the phone. The Telephone Town Hall Meetings enhance public access to City government by giving neighbors an opportunity to participate on each call and speak directly to the Mayor or a City Commissioner about a variety of issues.

About the Telephone Town Hall Meetings 

Each of the five Telephone Town Hall Meetings lasts one hour and is hosted by a different elected official from the City of Fort Lauderdale, either the Mayor or a City Commissioner. .  Please see the audio links below to listen to a prior call. 

All of the Meetings are general in nature so participants can introduce any topics that are important to them.  Neighbors are encouraged to join the meeting and share their ideas to enhance our community or ask a question about an ongoing project or City service.

During the Telephone Town Hall Meeting, the host elected official will provide a brief introduction and then answer questions from callers.  Participants on the call can request to ask a question or simply listen on the phone, without speaking.
