Mayor's Walking TourMayor Haslam's Listening Tour is a monthly event designed to bring city hall to Knoxville's neighborhoods.

"The Listening Tour is a convenient way for residents to let me know how city government is responding to their needs," Mayor Bill Haslam said. "Our city services should be efficient and accountable, and the Listening Tour provides an opportunity for citizens to let me know how we're meeting those goals."

Residents will have the opportunity to speak personally with Mayor Haslam before meeting with a city official with specific knowledge related to their comment or concern. Most questions relate to police and fire protection, codes enforcement, traffic engineering and other city services.

The Mayor also participates in Walking Tours and Bus Tours which are also designed to make it convenient for residents to share their ideas about their neighborhood and the city.

If you would like Mayor Haslam to visit your neighborhood, please contact Randall Kenner at 865-215-3710.
