Virden Mayor Murray Wright started a new tradition last Friday Nov. 8, inviting citizens to drop by the town office to ask questions and share suggestions with him in person.
A town employee was also on hand to keep a record of attendees and provide complaint forms if needed.
Gerry Gatey of Virden was among just a couple of visitors at the first Coffee with the Mayor get-together, hosted in council chambers. One topic of discussion was the restoration and possible expansion of the walking trail along Scallion Creek in Virden.
Watch the Town of Virden ad in the Empire-Advance for the date of the next Coffee with the Mayor, likely in the new year.
