Municipal Awareness Day

Today is Municipal Awareness Day.

Town councils across the province are inviting the general public to learn more about what they do.

Shirley Goudie is the Town Manager with the Postville Inuit Community Government (PICG).

She says they are holding an open house at their office all day.

The PICG is also hosting a lunch for residents of the community.

There are displays all around the office which describe the role and duties of the PICG.

Goudie says young students from B.L Morrison have some of their artwork on display as well.

The children created images depicting what they would do if they were the mayor of the town.

Their ideas include paving the roads, constructing a sportsplex and theatre.

Other ideas include banning alcohol in the community and placing a full time police force in Postville.

Goudie says the PICG is also inviting the public to check out the town garage.

There the children will have a chance to get their picture taken with some of the equipment.
