Officials in the city of Watertown are looking for input from low-income residents.

It has to do with the city’s new anti-poverty program, a $1 million state-funded project.

The group’s leader, Peter Schmitt wants to assemble a task force comprised of low-income wage earners in order to design a plan to specifically address poverty in the city.

Schmitt told Watertown lawmakers that the group needs to hear the voices of people actually dealing with the effects of poverty.
