AUGUST 9, 2016 — A Better South Walton (ABSW), a volunteer organization dedicated to seeking more effective governance and local representation for South Walton, is holding two town hall meetings to discuss the recently released charter summary and its impact on the proposed municipality of South Walton. These meetings will give the community the chance to get the information about the ABSW initiative, ask questions and voice their concerns.
The topics covered at the town hall meetings, free and open to the public, will include the charter summary and its framework for the proposed municipality, updates to the feasibility study and the results of a recent survey on naming conventions for the proposed municipality of South Walton. Each meeting will discuss the concerns for the future of South Walton and how the benefits of incorporation address those concerns. The process for incorporation will also be explained.
âThe charter summary details how the municipal government will be structured and function,â states David Pleat, president of A Better South Walton. âWith the communityâs feedback, we will incorporate those ideas and suggestions into a final charter summary that will define South Walton. It has never been more important to have the community to join us for our town hall meetings, we want to hear what you have to say.â
The meetings will be held:

Thursday, August 25th at 5:30 PM
