Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia is heading to Belmont Heights and Bixby Knolls on Saturday for another round of the “Meet the Mayor” series, his office announced.

Garcia’s first stop will be at the Library Coffee House, located at 3418 East Broadway, at 1:00PM. He will then be at The West Bistro (formerly known as the Breakfast Club), located at 3900 Atlantic Ave, at 2:30PM.

“We’ve now held 14 of these “Meet the Mayor” events since I’ve been in office, and I’m glad to take these opportunities to hear input from you and respond to your ideas and concerns,” Garcia said in a statement. “I’ll spend some time sharing news about the city, answering your questions, and just saying hello to residents.”

There is no formal program attached to the events. Residents will be able to share ideas and concerns at any time during the hour he will be available at each location. Both events are free and open to everyone, according to his office.
