The City of New Port Richey is proud to participate once again in this year’s Florida City Government Week during October 18–22. Sponsored by the Florida League of Cities, this annual event allows cities and towns across the Sunshine State to celebrate, showcase and engage their citizens in the field of municipal government.
This is a great opportunity for our citizens of all ages from 2 to 92 to learn how city services impact their daily lives and to bring awareness to the City’s role in contributing to the quality of life in New Port Richey. Some of the activities the City is planning for that week:
• 10/19, 6 p.m.: A public reception in City Hall to include a Q&A with the Mayor and City Council members, opportunities for pictures on the City Council Chambers dais and City Hall selfies using the city background, and New Port Richey swag giveaways.
The 10/19 reception will also include the display of student artwork entries from the partnership with Gulf Middle School to create a poster using this year’s theme of My City: I’m Part of It, I’m Proud of It. Top 3 winners will receive a gift card with the overall winner named honorary Mayor of New Port Richey and will bang the gavel at the start of the City Council meeting at 7 p.m.
• 10/20, 5-7 p.m.: The City staff will host a tour of City Hall. Advanced sign up will be required as the number of tour groups will be limited. The tour will give the public a behind the scenes look at life in City Hall. In addition, there will be opportunities to view City fire trucks, public works, and police vehicles up close.
• 10/22, 11 a.m.: Mayor Marlowe will read the children’s municipal book, The City That Talks, at City Hall during the Library’s Rhymes to Readers story time.
• During the week, the City will utilize social media and the website to highlight New Port Richey departments and employees, plus facts, history and trivia about our New Port Richey.
• Find out how to contribute civil service as a City Volunteer throughout the year.
