HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Huntington Mayor Steve Williams announced Monday he will be back walking through neighborhoods this spring.
According to a release, Williams will start his "Walks with the Mayor" tour March 20 in the city's West End.
The neighborhood walks began in 2015.
According to a release, Williams and representatives of the police, fire and public works departments have walked through each of the nine City Council districts at least three times.

I want our residents to know that I’m willing to walk the extra mile to hear and see how their neighborhoods can be improved.”
