TAVARES – The Lake County Board of County Commissioner is inviting local elected officials, municipal staff members and community representatives to the kick-off meeting and community training session to help the county obtain its membership with Keep America Beautiful (KAB). The meeting will be held from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6 at the Lake County Emergency Communications & Operations Center, 425 W. Alfred St., Tavares.
“Keep America Beautiful is known as the nation’s leading nonprofit agency that focuses on building and maintaining vibrant communities,” said Brian Sheahan, Lake County’s director of Community Safety & Compliance. “As part of our efforts to keep Lake County clean and attractive for our residents, businesses and visitors, we are seeking membership with KAB and this training session, which is open to interested members of the public, is the first step.”
Membership with KAB requires the establishment of a community team and the county is reaching out to government officials as well as community organizations with a special interest in the environment to serve on this team to ensure its growth and success.
The first hour of the program will provide an overview of KAB while the remaining three hours will be dedicated to training the KAB Community Team. This training will allow Lake County to complete its affiliation membership requirements. Once the affiliate process is complete, an event will be scheduled for community organizations and the public to participate in programming and participating in events.
To attend the program, RSVP to Brian Sheahan at firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more about the Keep America Beautiful program and its benefits, visit www.kab.org.
