City of Melbourne Celebrates Florida City Government Week
The City of Melbourne is joining cities around the state in celebrating Florida City Government Week October 22-26.
Because city government is the government with the most direct daily impact upon its residents, it is important that citizens understand how their city operates, the services it provides and the importance of their active involvement.
“Florida City Government Week is an opportunity to help our residents become more informed about the many services we provide, said Melbourne Mayor Kathy Meehan. “All this week we will be highlighting key city functions, such as public safety, water and sewer, and parks and recreation.”
Florida City Government Week, sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, is a weeklong celebration that raises awareness about the importance of municipal government and its daily impact on residents. The League is the official organization of the municipal governments in Florida.
