If you care about Hamilton — whether you live, work or visit — a committee of citizens hopes you’ll attend one of four focus group to discuss ways to make the city better.

All topics are open for discussion, including road improvements and city services, as well as other upgrades that can happen in Butler County’s largest city.

“Anyone who is involved in the city of Hamilton, whether it be as a resident, or someone who works here, or visits here,” is welcome, said longtime Hamilton volunteer Nancy Wiley, who is inviting people to the gatherings. “Anyone who’s interested in the betterment of the city.”

    “Just their opinions — their hopes and desires for Hamilton. We want to hear what they want to say,” she said.
