This course is developed for all elected and appointed municipal officials.Welcome to public office! As an elected official you’ll enact ordinances and resolutions, adopt budgets and levy taxes, guide the future growth of your community and respond to a wide variety of citizen ideas and concerns, all while staying on top of the latest state laws and regulations. The opportunities are great, but so are the complexities of being a local government official. This 2-day workshop will give you an overview of the basics – the things you need to know right now – and also help you look at the big picture of local government in your community. You’ll also learn while sharing information with your peers and take home a wealth of resources to use in the coming year. It’s a great refresher for the not-so-new official too, so bring the whole team from your community.
