Dakota County Commissioner Joe Atkins is hosting a listening session open to the public from 6-7 p.m. on Sept. 13 at the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center. Atkins invites the public to join him for a hike in the park prior to the event. The hike will begin at 4 p.m. and hikers should meet at the Visitor Center.
Atkins will provide a brief update on county business before opening the floor to take questions and listen to concerns. The listening session will give the public the opportunity to learn more about county projects and initiatives, address any issues and meet other citizens.
Both events are free and open to everyone.
“I’m looking forward to meeting with Dakota County residents at one of this area’s finest parks – Lebanon Hills,” said Commissioner Atkins. “Ideally, we’ll have plenty of sunshine, so we can enjoy a hike before the meeting.”
Atkins has been the commissioner of District 4 – serving parts of Inver Grove Heights, Rosemount and Eagan – since the beginning of 2017.
The Lebanon Hills Visitor Center is located at 860 Cliff Road, Eagan. For more information about the Visitor Center, call 651-554-6530.
