Leon County, FL - The Leon County commissioners usually hear community opinions from their chambers, but this time, it was out and about.
Thursday, the county held the seventh citizen engagement series, which focuses on planning for the future within Leon County.
The bulk of the discussion was on water quality, making sure the Wakulla springs and other bodies of water in the area remain clean.
Commissioners also discussed public transit, bringing back the downtown trolley and additional development throughout the area.
"One of the reasons why I love to serve on the local level and local government is the interaction with the citizens. It's important, these are our friends, our familes, our neighbors and it is very important for your county government to stay in touch with the citizens," said John Dailey, Leon County commissioner for District 3.
The event was held in the Leon County Main Library. More than 50 people showed up to voice their opinions. The citizen engagement series is open to all Leon County residents.
