Mayor Martin J. Walsh will host the third “Mondays with the Mayor” on Monday, July 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Bunker Hill Community College, 250 Rutherford Ave.,  Charlestown.

The event is part of a series of community town hall meetings designed to engage with residents and maintain accessibility and transparency in the Walsh administration.

Gabrielle Farrell of the Mayor’s press office said that the mayor’s policy team decided to bring back “Mondays with Marty,” which were public forums that were held during Walsh’s successful campaign for mayor. The name of the forums was changed to “Mondays with the Mayor.”

Farrell said that the previous forums were held in Brighton and Roxbury.

“Constituents inquired whether we were going to hold these events citywide and a decision was made to host these forums all across Boston,” said Farrell. “The policy team selects locations that will be able to accommodate a large number of people and provide an ideal stage setting for the mayor but still seem welcoming while giving these events a town-hall atmosphere so people feel they can express their thoughts and concerns.”

Members of Mayor Walsh’s cabinet and the leaders of city departments will also appear at the forum.

Walsh was elected mayor of Boston in November. He succeeded Tom Menino, the longest-serving mayor in the city’s history.

The doors open at 6 p.m. for the event.
