“Many citizens have called and asked me about various services the City offers,” says City Manager Robert Thompson.  “This expo is a great way to introduce our department heads and City staff to the public we serve and to answer any questions citizens have about services they receive from their local government.  I also look forward to meeting people from our community who wish to express their ideas for a better and rapidly growing DeFuniak Springs.”
