Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ATLANTA - Jun 05, 2018 - Local entrepreneur, philanthropist, and owner of Niche Marketing Strategies, Herschel Chalk III, was selected to participate in a new program designed to provide local business leaders and residents of Cobb County with an in-depth look at the functions of government.
Cobb 101 Citizens Government Academy is a 10-week course that kicked off in April and will run through June at various government buildings around the county. Chalk joins a group of only 45 Cobb County residents and business owners selected for the first session of the course.
Through the program, participants will learn about vital community services including zoning, planning, finance, court systems, parks and recreation and public safety. Each week, a different topic will be covered through interactive presentations, site visits and class meetings with government officials.
The goal is for participants to gain a better understanding of the relationships among residents and county government officials as well as the process of deciding why and how government projects are implemented and services are provided and the ways various projects support goals and objectives of the county. They will also learn about the county budgeting process and the roles and functions of various county departments.
“As a committed public servant, it is a real privilege for me to participate in this incredible program,” Chalk said. “I’ve already learned so many important things about how our county government operates and look forward to learning more. I can’t wait to take these lessons back to the community so I can be an even better contributor to my fellow residents in Cobb County.”
