Living Room Conversation with MPD July 23.

Courtesy Milton Police Department

It's time to get together and chat again - this time with our city's law enforcement officers.

The Better Together: Real Communities - Milton Mini-Grants Initiative is sponsoring the second in its series of "living room conversations" Monday, July 23 from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Bethwell Community Center, 2695 Hopewell Road (click here for directions).

This conversation will give residents a chance to know their police officers and offer a glimpse inside the vital community role they serve.

"All Milton residents should know their police officers, and we're here to facilitate those friendships," said Amanda Quintana, grant coordinator for the Better Together: Real Communities - Milton Mini-Grants Initiative. "As always, this will be a pressure-free environment to meet your neighbors and discuss your community."

Quintana said dessert and drinks will be provided.

Better Together is funded in large part through the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities' (GCDD) Real Communities Initiative: Milton. The grants support neighborhood improvements, promote neighborhood connections and fund projects that bring community members together.

Currently, GCDD provides Milton a little less than $20,000 in federal funds and the city matches just less than $5,000.
