Local government has a direct impact on each of us, every day. It's your city council, your county commission and your school board. It's your children climbing safely on the school bus, your local roads cleared of snow in winter and clean water coming out of your tap each morning.
It's your day-to-day quality of life.
Celebrate the value of these services with your employees and citizens during Local Government Week.
Watch below as the leaders of three local government organizations highlight the ways local government affects your life every day. Featured is Dan Ross with the Missouri Municipal League, Dick Burke with the Missouri Association of Counties, and Dr. Carter Ward with the Missouri School Boards Association.
