As announced in Fernandina Beach City Manager Dale Martin’s Weekly Column earlier, the Nassau Council on Aging (NCOA) will feature a class exploring city government beginning in January. Due to field trips associated with different segments of the class, class size is limited. Predictions are that the class will fill up quickly.
This is an excellent opportunity for people interested in running for local office to learn about the complexity of city government. It will also be helpful to newcomers and business owners in understanding how Fernandina Beach government works.
The information provided below will be published in NCOA’s next issue of Senior Life:
Exploring the Different Organizations within City Government
Presenter: Dale Martin, Fernandina Beach City Manager
Wed., Jan. 9, 16, 23, 30; Feb. 6, 13, 3:00-5:00 pm
★ Members: $3 – Non-Members: $5
Are you civic minded and interested in learning about your local government and its daily operations? Are you curious about how your tax dollars are spent? Do you want to learn and discuss the future vision of Fernandina Beach? City Manager Dale Martin will share his interests and experience in the areas of Government Organization (1/9), Finance (1/16), Operations (1/23), Public Safety (1/30), Utilities (2/6) and Enterprise Funds (2/13) in an informal 6-week course designed to be informative as well as interactive.
