(view on google maps)

Ever wonder about your city and county government? This presentation will explore how Kansas counties are different from cities, what each does, and how they are financed. Attendees will learn about the history of these local governments and reflect on their own city and county. This presentation will cover issues like budgets, taxation, planning, zoning, economic development, and public health. Come hear about the often-unknown inner workings of the most impactful government in daily lifeā€¦local city and county governments. Presented by Hannes Zacharias.

This presentation is part of "21st Century Civics," a collection of resources that invite Kansans to participate in community discussions and learn more about the history of American democracy and the shared responsibilities of citizenship. "21st Century Civics" is made possible with support from "A More Perfect Union: America at 250," an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
