The Mayor's South Side Task Force

Established in 1988 by Mayor Ken Smith and continued by Mayor Don Cunningham, Jr., the South Side Task Force is an unpaid advisory body of thirty members appointed by the Mayor of Bethlehem in order to promote full and effective communication between the people of South Bethlehem and the City's administrative branch. The Task Force acts as a forum for responding to concerns brought by the mayor as well as for gathering information about the needs of South Side neighborhoods. It can frame recommendations to the administration for improving the quality of life for South Side residents and, as its name indicates, it can sponsor and implement constructive projects such as the Annual South Side Clean-Up and publication of the South Bethlehem Calendar of Community Events.
