Public Engagement E-Monthly


This monthly Enews highlights new and relevant public engagement resources and events for local elected officials and staff.


Public Engagement and Technology

Technology is a powerful tool that can be used to enhance your public engagement efforts. It can help counties and cities change the who, how, when and where of participation in local decision-making. Whether local officials rely on cutting edge tools or more familiar ones, those who benefit the most from technology are clear about their purposes, audiences and have staff in place to maintain it well. ILG has new resources available to help local governments use technology to advance their public engagement efforts.


Use Free Technology to Enhance Public Meetings

Technology offers a way for local government agencies to increase reach of their public engagement efforts. ILG provides local governments with free resources and equipment, including key-pad polling devices and translation equipment, on loan to enhance public meetings.
