Good morning Hiawatha, Over the summer, the Hiawatha Police Department implemented a Citizen advisory Board. Our 1st meeting was held September 20th 6:00pm at City Hall. The board will hold regular meetings on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, 6:00pm at City Hall (701 Oregon St.). Anyone is welcome to attend, but please enter on the east side of the building. The goal of the advisory board, is to give citizens another avenue for input on a wide range of issues and concerns. It is our intent, to discuss relevant topics to our community in a very informal exchange of ideas. The advisory board will also be solicited to assist in the hiring process as needed within the police department. I will also seek input from the advisory on policy issues as the need arises. I would encourage anyone to seek out one of the members, should you have any concerns, questions, or issues. However, anyone and everyone are more than welcome to attend any of the meetings and bring concerns directly to the board. Advisory board Members; Evie Palato (citizen advocate & HCH medical Center) Dustin Williams (DNP- APRN) & Police Commissioner Matt Haws (Tattoo artist/local businessman) Jodi Koerperich (citizen advocate) Malachi Oswald (RN, BSN and citizen advocate) Sheri Caldera (citizen advocate)
