Wellington Celebrates Florida City Government Week
Wellington will join cities across the state in celebrating Florida City Government Week from Monday, October 23rd through Sunday, October 29th, 2017.
Florida City Government Week is a statewide celebration to raise public awareness about how cities operate, the services that cities provide, and the importance of residents' active involvement.
The theme “My City: I’m Part of It, I’m Proud of It” will guide this year’s activities.
“We are excited about Florida City Government Week and hope to engage the entire community,” said Mayor Anne Gerwig. “This is a great opportunity to foster Village pride and help our residents become more informed about the many services we provide, which will lead to more knowledgeable participation in the future.”
Wellington’s civic engagement initiative is already underway this month with the Civics 101 program which brings high school students to Village Hall and gives them a first-hand look into their local government.
Florida City Government Week, sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, is a time to showcase cities and recognize the significant role played by city government in the lives of its residents. The League is the official organization of the municipal governments in Florida, designed and established to meet and serve the needs of Florida’s cities and their residents.
The Village encourages residents to take an active part in promoting our Great Hometown through civic education.
