What if no water flowed at the kitchen sink tomorrow? What if garbage piled in the streets, and no one answered your 911 call?
The Florida Local Government Coalition is an umbrella that connects more than 25 associations of government professionals and businesses across the Sunshine State. Florida Business Watch is a business league working to improve our state’s economy through sound public policy. By sharing resources, educating citizens and advocating with one voice, the coalition raises awareness of city and county services that affect the lives of Florida’s 19 million residents.
Public safety, clean water, roads and bridges, sanitation, parks and recreation, and libraries are just a few of the services we often take for granted.
Florida’s quality of life is not by accident; local governments, their private sector partners and dedicated staffs make the difference. Today (Sept. 6) is Local Works Day.
Take a moment to celebrate the trusted services that help all Floridians through each and every day.
