BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The doors were open and members of the city commission welcomed guests to Bowling Green city hall. Plenty of people packed the building to grab some lunch and discuss the issues. City officials said although it's a great opportunity, taxpayers don't need an open house to voice their concerns.
"I think it's important for this to be the people's house. A lot of people are intimidated when they come in for a city commission meeting with all the cameras, microphones, and crowd. This gives them an opportunity to come into the city commission chambers and feel comfortable." said Mayor Bruce Wilkerson.
It wasn't just those who work at city hall who came out. Employees of the parks, schools, fire department, and police department, were all on hand for the event.
