Rolla Mayor Bill Jenks, III and members of the Rolla City Council recognized the importance of Local Government Week (April 28 through May 4) with a proclamation that was presented during the April 15 Rolla City Council meeting.
The City of Rolla invites the citizens of Rolla to celebrate ‘Local Government Week’ by acknowledging the many valuable services and programs Rolla city employees provide our community. This state-wide celebration was created by the Missouri Municipal League to raise awareness of and celebrate the important role city government plays in the lives of all Missourians.
The Local Government Week proclamation, which will be part of a display at the Rolla Public Library (900 N. Pine Street), states that the “continued success of our local governments in meeting the needs of our citizens is a key element in maintaining the overall quality of life in Missouri.” The display at the library, coordinated by Cathy Smith, Director of the Library, and her staff, will include several books and periodicals showcasing the various careers of municipal employees, and the many services they provide local communities.
Now is the time to learn more about how your local government serves you. Please visit the City’s Website at www.rollacity.org, and plan to attend the City’s Public Works Day Celebration on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Downtown Festival Lot and Bandshell area (9th and Oak Streets). The event is free and open to the public.
