Brown County Congress of Elected and Appointed Officials
The public is cordially invited to participate in the meeting of the Brown County Congress of Elected and Appointed Officials on Friday, June 6, 2014 from 7:30 am – 9:00 am at the Brown County REA Building in Sleepy Eye. Rolls, coffee, and juice will be provided.
Why meet as a countywide congress? In 2000, a collaborative workshop was held for the residents of Brown County to identify issues that need to be addressed in the county. Communication among the communities in Brown County was identified as major concern. A gathering of the key elected and appointed officials was proposed as a means to strengthen communication, build partnerships among agencies in the Brown County area, and focus on goals and strategic planning. The Brown County Congress has been meeting quarterly since the spring of 2000, with participants finding it to be an excellent opportunity to gather information and identify resources.
This quarter our forum will be Impacts and Issues of the Legislative Session. Representative Torkelson and Senator Dahms will be in attendance to share their views on the past session and and to answer questions. Representatives from the Federal levels have been invited to join us. Come and help make our voices stronger. This is an excellent opportunity to share your concerns with our elected officials.
