Reminder: Submit Comments on LMC 2019 Draft City Policies by Nov. 2

Could the policy development process be a treat? Committee leads Slayton Clerk/Administrator Josh Malchow, Oak Park Heights Mayor Mary McComber, and St. Louis Park Management Assistant Maria Carrillo Perez share a lighthearted moment while answering questions from the LMC Board of Directors at the October board meeting.

What's the most important ingredient in the League's City Policies? It's not magic—it's the input of city officials! Your comments on the draft 2019 City Policies are due by Nov. 2 to make them the best they can be.

The policy committee process includes over a hundred city officials who review existing policies, then refine, discuss, study, and propose new language for how to make them an even better foundation for the League's work in the upcoming legislative session and beyond.

These draft policies are then made available to all city officials for your review and comments. Your comments—each and every one—will be read and discussed at the November board meeting before making the policies final. So step away from the candy bowl (or bring it with you) and make sure that you get familiar with the draft policies before the end of the week!
