Resolve to Get Involved: Attend Local Government, School District Meetings

By EGP Staff Report

If your New Year’s Resolution was to get more involved in your community and/or your children’s education, attending the meetings of your local officials is a good way to keep track of what they are doing with your tax dollars and the policies the adopt than can have a big impact on our quality of life.

Even if you cannot attend every meeting, it’s important to attend when you can, watch the meetings online if available, and go the governing body’s website to take a look at meeting agendas and minutes to keep track of local decision making.
