Wellington Celebrates Government

The Village of Wellington will participate in the Florida League of Cities’ “Florida City Government Week” Sunday, Oct. 20 through Saturday, Oct. 26. The theme is “My Village: I’m Part of It, I’m Proud of It.”

Throughout Florida City Government Week, residents can learn about how local government works. There are several ways residents can get involved.

On Tuesday, Oct. 23, Wellington will host its annual Civics 101 program beginning at 5:30 p.m. The program is for local high school students to learn how various departments in the village contribute to making Wellington a great place to live, work and play.

Another popular program is Volunteer Wellington. Now in its third year, Volunteer Wellington has opportunities available for residents looking to take pride in making Wellington a great hometown. Contact the Community Services Department at (561) 791-4000 for more information.

The Great Hometown Survey is going on through November, and residents can help shape the future of Wellington. The survey will give residents the opportunity to let Wellington know what it’s doing well, what it can do to improve and what issues are most important. Wellington residents can take the survey online at www.wellingtonfl.gov under “events” as well as at most scheduled village events throughout the month of October.

City Government Week, sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, is designed to provide cities an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the many services they provide.
