After a short business meeting, our principal speaker will be City Manager, Gary Mekjian. Still relatively new to this position but
certainly far from new to Farmington Hills, Gary will comment on a variety of topics ranging from City goals, key issues, roads, commercial development, and initiatives in our city. To discuss
the Public Safety Millage Renewal that will be voted on in the fall, Gary will be joined by Police Chief Jeff King. At various points in the discussion, we will unmute participants to allow for
questions and answers.
