Voice Of Clarkstown: Supervisor, Residents Connect In Tele-Town Hall

NEW CITY, N.Y. - The supervisor's office on Maple Avenue felt more like a WFAN studio last month as George Hoehmann hosted the now-monthly Clarkstown Tele-Town Hall.

The forum, similar to a talk radio show format, affords residents the chance to call in and ask the supervisor a question or express their concerns regarding town issues. The series was first announced last January and the first such forum took place the next month.

During the October forum Hoehmann and Councilwoman Adrienne Carey fielded a variety of questions concerning the proposed Suez water rate hike, potential roads to be resurfaced, vacant houses, and a no-knock register.

Over the course of the hour-long forum 6,000 people called in with 1,400 people on the line at some points, a number that dwarfs actual attendance at typical town council meetings.
