Be a LWV observer at city council or school board meetings


This year, the Action Committee of the Roseville Area League of Women Voters is reactivating its local public meetings observer program. 

A training will be held on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 3:30 p.m. at the Lexington Park Building, 2131 Lexington Ave. N. in Roseville. The training is free and open to the public.

Observers can monitor city council meetings for the five member cities of Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Little Canada, Maplewood and Roseville, focusing on housing and the other League 2017-2018 priorities of police, environment and openness in government. Observers can also sign up to monitor meetings of the three area school boards — Mounds View 621, North St. Paul/Maplewood/Oakdale 622 or Roseville Area 623 — with a focus on environmental issues, for example, Styrofoam trays, and openness in government.

The training will be conducted by Mindy Greiling, Wayne Groff, Elizabeth Hansel and Gladys Jones and will explain the purpose of observing, procedures and League positions that may come up and a short reporting form.
