Leon County

Since 2017, Leon County Government has implemented more than 200 citizen ideas to improve the programs and services we offer in Leon County. Such ideas include:

  • Adding a “button” to translate the County’s Emergency Information Portal website to keep citizens of any language proficiency informed during a disaster.
  • Creating a “Help My Pet” sticker to assist first responders in contacting a pet caretaker when the owner cannot be reached.
  • As a pilot program, installing three electric vehicle charging stations at the Main Library and Eastside Branch Library.
  • Transferring surplus Leon County EMS ambulances to Lively Technical Center to be used for training in the recently established Diesel Truck Maintenance Program.

All of these suggestions were from citizens like you!

We’re continuously looking to engage citizens as co-creators of our one-of-a-kind community, so we want you to send us more of your bright ideas.

Enter a world of phantasmagorical creatures in a future we should hope to avoid. Jeff VanderMeer will read from his novel AMC is turning into a TV series and talk about nature and the rich biodiversity of Tallahassee—and how we can keep it that way. Jeff VanderMeeris known most for his Southern Reach trilogy from FSG “Borne”, which won the Shirley Jackson Award and Nebula Award and recently made Buzzfeed’s list of the best books of the decade. The trilogy also prompted the New Yorker to call the author “the weird Thoreau” and was published in 35 countries, with Paramount Pictures releasing a movie in 2018.

The event is free and open to the public.
