Recycling Solutions

November 1: America Recycles: Do Florida Cities? 
Each year, on and in the weeks leading up to America Recycles Day, thousands of communities across the country promote and celebrate recycling. By making it easier for residents to recycle, we know we can reduce the carbon footprint and help maintain a clean and healthy environment. But did you also know that a well-run recycling operation could make money for cities? Join the City of Port St. Lucie and St. Lucie County as we discuss the environmental and fiscal benefits of “Single Stream Recycling” and collaborative partnerships.

America Recycles Day is November 15. #BeRecycled 


CRC Review

November 2: CRC Update: What we know so far  
The Constitution Revision Commission is one of five ways Florida can amend the state constitution. It happens once every 20 years and is taking place now. The League is actively following the process and encouraging local government leaders to stay engaged throughout the process to ensure any recommendations made by the CRC uphold Home Rule. October 6 is the last day for members of the public to submit proposals. October 31 is the last day for CRC commissioners to file theirs. Join us on November 2 to learn what those proposals contain and actions needs to influence the committee process. 

*This session will be at 10 am ET.

Discovering Leadership

November 9: Discovering Leadership with Dr. Scott Paine
Much of what we need to learn as leaders is taught by ordinary events. Join Dr. Scott Paine and Holly McPhail for an intimate exploration of life lessons for leadership in Dr. Paine’s new book, More than Self.

This session is part of a monthly series #InspiringLeaders exploring hot topics in municipal service, ethics and public opinion. 

Municipal Roles in Housing

November 15: Municipal Roles in Housing

The state has dedicated trust funds to support affordable housing programs, but lawmakers in Tallahassee routinely use housing trust fund monies for other purposes. As members of the Sadowski Coalition, the Florida League of Cities joins 30+ other organizations in urging the Florida Legislature to appropriate all the housing trust funds for housing. Join us for this one-hour session with Florida Housing Coalition CEO and Sadowski Coalition facilitator, Jaimie Ross, to discuss the role of local government from both a planning and financing perspective in addressing affordable housing in their communities. We will provide a comprehensive overview of Florida’s statutory scheme for affordable housing, Florida’s housing trust fund programs, and the most up-to-date tools for meeting the housing needs of all income groups, from people experiencing homelessness to first-time homeowners.
