Mayor Goertzen's Open Door Policy
In an attempt to open the lines of communication with all residents of Steinbach, Mayor Goertzen would like to invite each citizen to visit with him during an “Open Door Day”. The mayor would love to hear your views, ideas, and vision for Steinbach.
"Open Door Day" is held the third Friday of each month (except December), from 9am until 11:30am. It will be held at the Mayor’s office at Steinbach City Hall, 225 Reimer Ave.
This is a wonderful way for the citizens of Steinbach to access the Mayor’s office without an appointment. "Open Door Day" will operate on a first come, first served basis. Residents are given 10 minutes to discuss their issues privately with the mayor.
