Municipal Awareness Week May 9 - 13 2022

Municipal government is responsible for the provision of services that enhance the quality of life of its citizens.

From May 9 - 13, the City of St. John's joins with other municipalities around the province to declare this week Municipal Awareness Week.

In the shared proclamation, Mayor Breen said:

  • Whereas dedicated mayors, councillors, and staff are essential for the effective governance of their municipalities, and
  • Whereas collaboration, partnerships and citizen involvement are essential for active, sustainable and vibrant communities; and
  • Whereas it is fitting and proper to recognize and encourage the contribution of all who work diligently for the improvement of our municipalities.
  • Therefore I, Mayor Danny Breen, do hereby proclaim May 9 – 13, 2022 as Municipal Awareness Week in the City of St. John’s.

"City employees are on the frontlines of organizational performance, literally providing the very services that are at the core of city operations. From maintaining City infrastructure to offering core services to communicating information to the public, our employees are often the first on the scene and the last to leave in critical situations, "said Mayor Breen. "While we value our employees each and every day, it seems especially important during Municipal Awareness Week that we formally recognize and applaud our them. On behalf of all my colleagues on Council and all the residents, business owners and visitors to the City of St. John’s, thank-you for your dedicated service."
