Coffee with the Mayor

In 2007, Mayor Kovarik wanted a way to meet with residents informally, outside of the Board meetings and other official events. She created the idea of hosting "Coffee with the Mayor" events at coffee shops and restaurants around Gurnee. These events gave residents and the mayor the opportunity to have one-on-one communications in relaxed and comfortable settings. 

In 2015, Mayor Kovarik changed it up by holding these events at all types of businesses, not just coffee shops or eateries. This exciting change gives the mayor a chance to meet with residents while also giving a wide variety of businesses the opportunity to showcase their venues.

If you would like to talk about issues, ask questions, discuss concerns, offer comments or suggestions, or just have a chance to meet the mayor, please take the time to come out to one of these events. Mayor Kovarik is looking forward to meeting with you!

Events are held every other month from 10:00 a.m. to noon. Upcoming dates and locations will be posted to this page when they are available.
