I happen to work for the town planners office, plus coordinate a ton of public events that the bunch of us host… Yes the town planner is responsible for the logistics plus outlay of the town, the best sites for roads, zoning, plus all of that boring stuff.
I bet you had no clue that they host a lot of parties, too, for grand opening, groundbreaking ceremonies, plus planning parties, however honestly I feel more like an event coordinator than a municipal employee. I am not grumbling though because the food is always good. I have made some great contacts in local businesses, which is fantastic because I rely on commercial printing services a lot more than I would have thought. For all of these crucial public events the bunch of us need a lot of signs plus graphics, plus while I can design them myself I have to take them to a company to have them printed for me. Getting posters made to advertise local events happens almost every single week, plus menus, name badges, buttons, banners, plus a bunch of other things that require commercial printing. I don’t want to say how much our department spends on printing each and every year, however believe me the number would easily surprise you! If the bunch of us didn’t have access to a commercial printer plus a laminator, then the county would have to blow a whole decade’s budget to purchase the right equipment. I have developed a fantastic relationship with the staff at the printing service the bunch of us use, which is great because now I can just text in our orders plus get them when I need them.
