Stuttgart military community members are invited to bring their suggestions, concerns and feedback to three town halls taking place this month.

The town halls are open to all DoD ID cardholders. The garrison command team and representatives from the directorates will be present to answer questions. A first town hall took place on Kelley Barracks, April 19; the next three town halls take place on the following dates/locations:

•May 16: Robinson Barracks Chapel, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
•May 23: Panzer Chapel, Panzer Kaserne, 4:30 – 5 p.m. (Note: This is a change from the original date and time of May 22.)
•May 31: Patch Chapel, Patch Barracks, 5 – 6 p.m.

Community members are asked to submit their questions and topics of discussion for the town halls in advance. Topics for town halls may be submitted to the garrison Public Affairs Office  or via Facebook message. Any questions that were submitted that aren’t discussed will still be answered. A recap of town hall questions and answers will be published in the June issue of the Stuttgart Citizen.

All community members should do their part to keep the garrison safe and clean. The Directorate of Emergency Services reminds community residents that they can directly address observed complaints on post, such as improper recycling, unsafe driving, parking or pet issues. Unit leaders who see misconduct by service members should exercise their general military authority, while complaints about individuals outside of the chain of command (civilians, family members, contractors or local nationals) should be reported to the Military Police at the time the incident is observed.
