Hey everyone! Welcome back to another week of news here on Summit in Six! Today, we’ve got a community engagement-focused episode for you.
For some context, because we’re engagement junkies over here, community engagement refers to the many ways Summit County works to inform and involve our community in the decisions and actions of local government.
It’s a really important aspect of local government. When we interact with the community, Summit County is better able to address YOUR values, needs, and concerns while also ensuring transparency and accountability.
So, let’s get into the upcoming ways our listeners can engage with different departments in the county organization!
WIC GRAND OPENING
First up, the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program is hosting a Health & Resource Fair on Friday, October 13 from 3-6 at the Kamas services building, located at 110 N. Main Street in Kamas. This event is a celebration of the grand opening of WIC’s brand-new Kamas Clinic!
We hope the event will help to educate the community on all services that are available to them through the WIC program and beyond. It’ll be an evening full of fun and information! All community members are welcome. Learn more at facebook.com/summitcountyhd.
ENERGY VAMPIRE EVENT
Sticking with the spirit of spooky season, Summit County residents and their families are encouraged to attend the “Ward Away Energy Vampires” event on November 2nd from 4pm – 6pm at the Kimball Junction Library and learn how these sneaky “Energy Vampires” can swiftly steal energy and water resources from your home!
Area utility companies, Park City and Summit County Sustainability Teams will be there to teach tips and tricks on easy, affordable ways you can conserve precious electricity, gas and water resources in your home and help you save money! This FREE event is open house style and will have interactive kid-friendly activities. Costumes are encouraged! Register today at summitcounty.info/energyvampire.
OUR SUMMIT #3
And finally, we know we’ve talked about it a lot, but PLEASE don’t miss your chance to participate in Phase 3 of “Our Summit,” the county-wide community visioning process! Your responses will directly impact and guide the future of Summit County. In this phase, you’ll help us understand how YOU prioritize certain features of your local community, what enhancements you would like to see and how you think growth should be handled.
