Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger will host another County Conversations meeting tonight at Hixson Middle School at 6 p.m.
Commissioner Mitch McClure and School Board Chairman Everett Fairchild will attend. In addition, Coppinger has scheduled a second District 6 conversation at the request of Commissioner Joe Graham.
That event will be held March 28 at East Lake Academy at 6 p.m.
