The Knox County Mayor’s Office continues to create easier ways for communities to stay connected to local government.
The county recently launched a Neighborhood and Civic Organization registration system allowing groups that sign up to quickly receive updates regarding a number of important issues, such as road closures, public meeting notifications and general updates on county projects within the community, that they can then forward on to their members.
The new online system also creates a more efficient way for the county’s Constituent Services team members to answer questions and respond to requests. Further, the portal provides the opportunity for residents to request someone from the county to speak at an event, such as a neighborhood meeting.
“The goal is to create an easier way for folks to stay connected and to make sure we’re doing our job,” Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs said. “It also makes sure they know we are working to resolve any of their community-related concerns.”
The county Constituent Services team has long served under Mayor Jacobs as an informational and educational resource for county services and local government and is devoted to helping residents feel supported by and connected to their county leaders.
“I am committed to creating opportunities for everyone to thrive in an engaged and vibrant community and showing the world what we already know: Knox County is the best place to live, work and raise a family,” Mayor Jacobs said.
