HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hattiesburg city officials met residents face to face in a relaxed setting Tuesday afternoon.  

A monthly "Community Office Hours" event at Topher's on Broadway Drive gave residents a chance to ask police, fire, and public works officials about various issues affecting them. 

Similar meetings have been held in all five city wards. 

"We really try to mix it up as far as where we go, what part of the ward we go to," said Toby Barker, mayor of Hattiesburg. "So, I expect that we'll continue doing this for every month from here on out." 

It was the 8th time for the community meeting.
