Community Meeting, September Minutes
Hey Neighbors, Here's what you missed, from our September 9 meeting!
Home and Garden Tour was September 29! BIG THANKS to all the volunteers and neighbors who supported that event, especially Committee Chair Kim Wiggins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Next Meeting: Monday, October 14: Latinx Outreach. PPNA is planning a Latinx Outreach resource meeting for October, in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Volunteer your Translation Services or connect us with your Latinx friends/neighbors/resources to collaborate. Contact Taylor Binnix, email@example.com.
Rianna Eckel, Food and Water Watch
The Water Accountability & Equity Act is a piece of legislation the Baltimore Right to Water Coalition is pushing to pass through the City Council. The legislation would do two things:
1. Create a Water For All affordability program to ensure that low income families can afford their water bills.
2. Create an office of the Water Customer Advocate to handle water billing disputes in a timely, accountable way. Contact Rianna to show your support: (410) 394-7652 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scott Davis, Office of City Council President Brandon M. Scott

Cleaning up City Government
