Llano’s city manager hosted a listening session Thursday evening at the Visitors Center in order to help increase public involvement for the city of Llano.
Brenton Lewis said he plans make this session a monthly event. All thoughts and ideas put forward are recorded by City Secretary Toni Milam and then passed to the Llano City Council to be reviewed and possibly addressed.
Jannie Vaught, a citizen in Llano, asked how the city could get out of "zero growth.”
Lewis said issues such as water and roads need to be addressed first, and added the importance of promoting the quality of life Llano already has.
On the other hand, he noted the balance the city wants to maintain between growth and maintaining the town’s uniqueness.
"We want to be a town that’s growing, but
also keep our lifestyle,” Lewis explained. This rural living includes everyone
knowing their neighbors and walking down the streets at 5 a.m. without fear.
