More Information....

It’s a great opportunity to get an “insider's” view of the Town, become more knowledgeable about how the Town works, and help to build and strengthen the communication, bonds, and relationships that make Atherton such a wonderful community.
The objectives of ACE 2018 are to involve and engage people in learning about and understanding the operations of local city government, and to improve communication between the Town and those who live here. Participants will learn about how decisions are made, how funds are allocated, what services our police offer, and how departments operate with each other. Participants will also get an opportunity to sit down with Councilmembers to discuss issues and concerns, and plans for shaping the future of our Town.
