September 6, 2013, is being recognized as Local Works Day. The Florida Local Government Coalition has launched a public awareness campaign called "Local Works" to help Floridians understand, appreciate and support local governments and the services and values these governments bring to millions of lives each day.
Floridians depend on local government services every day. It can be easy to take things for granted. Flip the switch, and the lights come on. Take the trash to the curb, and its gone the next day. Call 911, and someone answers. We’re fortunate to live in a place where things just. . .work. It’s not like that everywhere in the world. But in Florida, we enjoy a quality of life like no other.
On September 6, let's celebrate the public servants and services that knit our communities together.
