City notifications

Dear Editor:For the first time in over 21 years that I have lived in Downey, for the first time ever, my husband and I received in the mail (twice in the last month) notifications from the city asking citizens to attend City Council meetings regarding actions taking place in Downey. In all the time I have lived here, I have never received a notification from our city. We received one notice regarding a parking place required for a new business and the other was in regards to the OLPH yearly carnival. So I have to ask myself, "What is really going on?" Why, all of a sudden, and out of the blue, is the city making a point to notify its citizens of up-and-coming actions going on in Downey? Not that I disapprove; quite the contrary. I think this is appropriate and long-awaited behavior on the city's part to alert its citizens on what is going on in their city. Whatever the case, I am pleased to actually (for once) be informed! -- Stacey Rodgers, Downey
