LaBelle, FL – Hendry County is offering a unique opportunity for its citizens to speak with their elected commissioners by district and county staff.
Last year Hendry County Government held a series of Community Values Workshops to engage local residents and receive insight into their level of agreement on various public service investments. Using these insights during the 2014 budget season, County Commissioners and staff prioritized efforts to enhance Hendry County.
Hendry County Government is once again hosting this series with a fresh new concept to engage local citizens, Speed Date Your Commissioner. The premise of the speed dating format is to encourage people to meet and engage with a large number of individuals in a short amount of time and efficiently voice their ideas.
At the conclusion of the speed dating citizens will be able to anonymously vote for their top priorities. The votes will be calculated and utilized to once again be a guiding principal for the upcoming budget season.
The first Speed Date Your Commissioner Event will be Tuesday, March 31, 2015 with Commissioner Michael Swindle at the Montura Club House from 5:30-6:30 pm.
