Hospital board to host community dialogue
June 27, 2012
The Snoqualmie Valley Hospital board will host an informal, community dialogue before its regularly scheduled monthly meeting.
The community dialogue will begin at 5:30 p.m. July 5 at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 S.E. River St.
Dick Jones, hospital board chairman, proposed the idea in March because during regular meetings, members of the public are allowed to speak for only three minutes. But the commissioners aren’t able to address the public’s questions or comments.
“It’s a one-way conversation,” Jones said in a phone interview. “I just thought this would be a better way to communicate with each other.”
He said he envisioned the informal meeting taking place the hour before the normally scheduled monthly meeting, “where we can talk openly and dialogue with each other.”
No action would be taken during the informal discussion, he said.
The board’s regular meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.
