Mayor Koch with the Help of Betty Yau Work for Quincy Strong
Much Effort Behind the Scenes Goes Unnoticed
I have been somewhat of a quiet and impressed observer of the Mayor's efforts and the important contributions of Betty Yau.
Because this newsletter is schedule to be published on Veterans Day I want to acknowledge the thanks and appreciation we all have for the men and women in the Armed Services, past and present.
Mayor Koch and Betty Yau have forged a partnership to make sure communication with Quincy's Asian Community is the best that it can be. Betty, a Constituent Services Specialist, has worked tirelessly on a number of Asian language publications. I thought in this newsletter I would share links to these materials. These are important behind the scenes efforts to insure language is not an obstacle to understanding local government, services available, building codes, and regulations.
For new immigrants as well as other new residents to Quincy there is much to learn: where do I vote, what is recyclable, do I need a parking permit, who is my local representative, etc. It is in this spirit that I offer this newsletter to let you know of the important work that is being done.
There are two important reference materials that are annually updated and published by the Mayor's Office to insure our local level of government communicates with new arrivals.
The Mayor with the assistance of Betty Yau produce two valuable publications that I would like to share with you.
In addition to these publications, please note that there is a Mayor's Asian American Advisory Committee. To visit their website please click here. There is also a facebook page you can visit by clicking here.
The first publication published and distributed by the Mayor's Office is Quincy's Government "Service Handbook". It provides a list of Quincy's Community Centers, a listing of recyclables, and voter registration information amongst other things. To view this handbook please click here.
An annually updated handbook worked on by Betty and the Mayor is the "Good Neighbor Handbook". This handbook continually improves and looks to incorporate the latest regulatory information for the City of Quincy. This publication speaks to a number of important issues including the rules regarding parking regulations, trash pickup, building regulations, and permitting requirements. To view a copy of this handbook please click here.
I am proud to share these materials with you because it shows a level of commitment by Mayor Koch and Betty Yau to build a "Quincy Strong" . I think we can all be proud of their efforts. I know I am.
