Media Release –
Guelph Civic League AGM to Feature Mayor’s
Address on Who Does What at City Hall
Guelph, Ontario – Mayor Karen Farbridge will give a presentation titled “Local Government - who does what?” at the 2013 Annual General Meeting of the Guelph Civic League. The AGM is scheduled for Wednesday, January 30, at 10 Carden Street in Downtown Guelph starting at 7 pm. The event is free and open to the public. Beverages and light snacks will be served.
Rodrigo Goller and Kelly Guthrie, community engagement coordinators for the City of Guelph, will also be on the bill discussing the City’s developing Community Engagement Framework. The framework aims to provide municipal decision makers and community members with a consistent and genuine approach to community engagement.
GCL President Dave Sills noted that both presentations will help Guelph citizens to better understand how their local government works and how they can get involved. “It’s all about knowledge – knowing where and when to get engaged in the process, who to talk to, and how to make an impact,” says Sills.
Founded in 2004, the Guelph Civic League is committed to keeping citizens informed and working towards a local democracy that is inclusive, participatory, transparent and accountable. The Guelph Civic League has an active blog (recently reaching over 30,000 views) that can be found at http://guelphcivicleague.ca.
