Florida City Government Week

Boca Raton: I'm Part of It; I'm Proud of It!

2018 FL Government Week graphic, Oct 22-28    

The City of Boca Raton will be joining cities throughout the state in celebrating Florida City Government Week from October 22 – 28. Florida City Government Week, sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, is a week-long celebration that raises awareness about the importance of municipal government and its daily impact on residents. The League is the official organization of the municipal governments in Florida.

In honor of Florida City Government Week, the City will be participating in the celebration with multiple initiatives to raise public awareness about programs and services. A social media campaign on multiple platforms will explain how local government works while promoting the theme of the week: “Boca Raton: I’m part of it; I’m proud of it!”

Mayor Scott Singer will present a proclamation at the City Council meeting on October 23 at 6 pm. Student government representatives from public high schools and universities within city limits will be in attendance at the meeting, including Florida Atlantic University, Lynn University, Palm Beach State College, Boca Raton High School and Spanish River High School. Each student government body will be presented with a Certificate of Recognition for participating in a student government leadership role and learning about their City government.

What's a proclamation?
A proclamation is an official announcement issued by the Mayor with the goal to honor, celebrate or create awareness of an event, special occasion, cause or significant issue. Proclamations often recognize a day, week or month that will have a city-wide impact, and they should generally be related to a community benefit, organization or City of Boca Raton operations. 

Tune in during tonight’s 6pm City Council meeting for the Proclamation of #FLCityWeek with student government representatives from Florida Atlantic University, Lynn University, Palm Beach State College, Boca Raton High School and Spanish River High School. Join us in recognizing their involvement in student government.
