Tours are part of statewide City Government Week initiative

The City of St. Augustine will be joining cities throughout the state in celebrating Florida City Government Week from October 21-25.  Because city government is the government closest to most citizens, and the one with the most direct daily impact upon its residents, it is important that residents understand how their city operates, the services it provides and the importance of their active involvement. 

On Thursday, October 24, two free public tours of the Wastewater Treatment Plant will be available at 9:00am and 2:00pm.  Advance reservations are required and may be made online at  Space is limited so early registration is strongly encouraged.

Consider this: Where does the stuff go when you flush a toilet?  Do you know the difference between flushable, non-flushable, and biodegradable products?  One way to find out is to take this tour.  Participants will gain a better understanding of how their own domestic habits affect the water quality of the Matanzas River.  

Also this year, police officers and firefighters will greet elementary school students during morning drop-off, and then participate in morning announcements and the Pledge of Allegiance. 

Florida City Government Week, sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, is a week-long celebration that raises awareness about the importance of municipal government and its daily impact on residents. The League is the official organization of the municipal governments in Florida.
