There takes a lot to keep a city running and in a position to provide support and services to its residents.

There are countless public servants in every community who often spend day and night ensuring that things in our villages, towns, and cities run with minimal disruption.

Of course, there are issues, that are inherent in every community, but from day to day our lives would be vastly different if there weren't people who stepped up daily to serve their neighbors.

If you are looking for some ways to serve the people in your community, then the City of Buffalo might want to hear from you.
