Local governments generally include two tiers: counties and cities/towns.
Most local governments are in charge of school districts or fire protection districts.
They take responsibility for parks and recreation services, police and fire departments, housing services, emergency medical services, municipal courts, transportation services, and public works (streets, sewers, and snow removal).
Before running for the office of city commissioner,and the office of the mayor, she was a journalist.
She was a reporter and a city editor at the Emporia Gazette.
Mayors decide how to spend money on local programs, construction projects, parks, city streets, and other things. At city council meetings, where local officers discuss current and upcoming plans for their areas, the mayor listens to everything and has the power to vote on which plans should be put into practice.
A mayor is also responsible for making sure that city services, such as the fire department and police department, work well and are helping everyone who needs assistance.
