The City of Gainesville will be holding its second City Services Fair at the Howard Bishop Middle School on Saturday.
The fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is designed to allow city residents and anyone who works in and/or does business with the city to learn more about the city services and local government. The event will be in the middle school cafeteria, located at 1901 NE Ninth St.
“I’m so excited about our second iteration of the City Services Fair for the City of Gainesville,” said Yvette Carter, Gainesville’s director of government affairs and community relations, in an interview with Larry Wilson on 106.9 I Am Country. “It will be an opportunity for all of our residents, all of our neighbors in the City of Gainesville to come out to Howard Bishop to interact with our city departments and find out about our public-facing services. All of the things we are doing in the city directly affecting and helping our neighbors, they are able to come out and learn about them and even sign up for some of them.”
Like the first fair that took place in June, Carter said the event will include a tire recycle roundup, a tree giveaway, and a youth sports signup.
“Anyone who is a City of Gainesville resident or operates in and a part of the City of Gainesville, so if you partake in services or need services from the city, then we would want you to come out and be a part of our City Services Fair,” Carter said.
The event is free and food and refreshments will be provided.
