Does regional fragmentation impact regional growth?
What municipal services are exceptional in your community?
When considering the possibility of consolidated municipal services in the region, what are the three most important factors to account for?
Throughout October, these are some of the questions the St. Louis City-County Governance Task Force will be asking as they host the first in a series of town-hall discussions to which the community is invited.
Town halls offer an opportunity to collect extensive input from the community, so that the Task Force can consider this feedback when issuing reports and developing recommendations on an idealized structure of government for the region.
Town hall attendees will be provided an update on the efforts of the Task Force, the opportunity to participate in a live poll of the audience, and be led in substantive small group discussions on City-County governance.
Please RSVP to a Task Force town hall near you, and join the conversation!
