From the students of Southeast Elementary - Mr. Jay Lawrence visited Mrs. Houston's class at Southeast Elementary today to talk about the responsibilities of our city government and our responsibilities as citizens. He told us about the precincts, the commissioners (how they serve 2 year terms), and the mayor of Sweetwater (who serves a 2 year term as well). He described how the city maintains the parks, swimming pool, streets, and animal shelters. He also told us that the city is responsible for our trash pickup, police department, and fire department! He told us that our city government helps make rules and laws for our community. We were so excited to have him come today!
