Once again revisiting the discussion of Hull’s “Neighborhood Newsletter,” Councilwoman Paige Phillips presented the council with a draft of what will be sent out.
“For our first issue I’ve basically put together a one-page letter that includes a message from the mayor, and a list of fire safety tips provided by our volunteer fire department,” said Phillips. “In the future, I’d like to include a few more, smaller articles about local businesses and historical facts, but couldn’t fit them into this issue because of a lack of space.”
Phillips questioned where mailing addresses would be obtained.
“Have we decided to just go by the current voters list when mailing these out?” she asked.
Mayor Paul Elkins said that would be appropriate “until we can get a list of all physical addresses.”
“It should provide us with about 100 households,” said Elkins.
Councilman Wayne Melton questioned when the mailing date would be.
“When can we expect the newsletter to be ready for mailing?” he asked.
Phillips said she believed the letter would be ready.
“I have to make a few minor adjustments, but as soon as I can get the list of addresses they’ll be ready,” she said. “So hopefully we can have them sent by the end of the month.”
Mayor Elkins offered final thoughts on the matter.
“Everyone is asking about the newsletter,” he said. “I think what we’re doing is a good thing, and I’m looking forward to the response we’ll get.”
