Rebecca McCall, first term County Commissioner, will provide a roadmap detailing the inner-workings of our local, state and federal governments. Session 1 will address questions regarding how and when the County works with the Hendersonville City Council and other municipal representatives in Henderson County, describe what services are provided, who pays and where is the line drawn on ownership and responsibility.

During these 2 sessions, participants will gain insight into the critical inter-relationships of local government agencies, comprehend the intricacies of tax supported programs, their focus, benefactors and beneficiaries, discover who really is in charge of fixing potholes and understand how you, as a volunteer, can make a difference in your community.
