I ask that your mark your calendars for the launch of Municipal Awareness Week which will take place September 24-30, 2012. The purpose of this initiative is to:
- promote the importance of municipal government in peoples' daily lives including school-aged children;
- encourage citizens to participate in municipal government−including attending council meetings, public hearings or joining an advisory committee−in a way that is inclusive to all Nova Scotians; and
- increase voter turnout rates during the October 20, 2012 Municipal Elections.
This project is a three-way partnership between the UNSM, Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations and the Association of Municipal Administrators.
