Municipal Government Month

Municipal Government Month

Since 1993, cities and towns throughout the state have been celebrating Municipal Government Works month each November in an effort to educate their citizens about the role and function of the government closest to them.

To promote municipal government awareness, many cities and towns will recognize this month with local proclamations, such as the proclamation recently adopted by the Bowie City Council, and will the display a flag with the logo MGW, "Municipal Government Works,” to promote their local government.

Bowie residents can learn more about how their municipal government works by attending Council meetings and keeping up with local issues, by scheduling a tour of City Hall, or by arranging for students or other youth groups to learn about the local legislative process by conducting their own “mock Council meeting” in the Council Chambers at City Hall.

For more information, contact the City Clerk’s office at 301-809-3029.
