More Civics in 2021

November 18th, 2020 No comments

Looking toward the new year, I am making an effort to be more civic-minded and taking more interest in my city, country, state and country.

Part of this involves being more aware of all the city meetings that take place almost daily here in Los Angeles. 

Today, I am starting with resources that give you links to City Council, City Departments, Neighborhood Councils, and More.

This page provides links to all the public city meeting agendas. I wish it were accessible;e via RSS or other API, but at the very least, this is a place you can add to your “daily/weekly visit” bookmarks list in your browser.

Looking towards more Civics in 2021

So, just what is “civics” anyway?

Civics is defined as: the study or science of the privileges and obligations of citizens.

Civic education is the study of the theoretical, political and practical aspects of citizenship, as well as its rights and duties. It includes the study of civil law and civil code, and the study of government with attention to the role of citizens―as opposed to external factors―in the operation and oversight of government. League of Women Voters of Delaware.

In order to have the government we want, we need to both understand and engage in civics activities in our local communities. I am dedicated to doing better in 2021. How about you?

Sign up for USPS Informed Delivery Daily and save yourself headaches!

The US Post Office has a service that sends you a preview of whatever paper mail is scheduled to arrive each day. In the past this has helped us catch the infrequent times when a temporary mail carrier uses our old mail slot instead of the mailbox on the end of our porch, but today it helped us prevent an even larger problem.

Sign up for USPS Informed Delivery Daily and save yourself headaches! [Life Hack]I

had noticed that we were supposed to receive a DMV Renewal form a few days ago, but we didn’t know where it was. We did remember seeing other mail which arrived on the same day, so it was very likely the notice had been misplaced in the house somewhere.

Sure enough, we found it in the small recycle bin in the house. Without Informed Delivery we wouldn’t have known that something was missing  and it could have been quite costly.

Help make your life just a little bit easier.
