Metro West Council of Government is an association of municipalities serving a population of more than 750,000 in Kane, Kendall and DeKalb Counties of Illinois. Metro West fosters regional cooperation to address regional issues including managing growth, transportation and water conservation and promoting sustainable economic development. Metro West provides a united voice for municipalities and serves as their strong advocate. The Council provides networking opportunities for area mayors and managers, which allow them to share ideas and address common issues.
Metro West Legislative Mixer and Golf Outing
The 5th annual Metro West Golf Outing took on new life this year. A legislative component was included. Plans were made to include local legislators in the event to golf, or just enjoy the networking aspect of the event. Nine legislators were signed up to attend. That changed when they were called back to Springfield early in the week. We will hope that next year they are able to attend and enjoy the day.
On July 27th at 4:00 the event kicked off with a great group of golfers ready to compete at Topgolf! There were many representatives from municipality members, Business Partners and other Sponsors. Please see the list of Sponsors below that made this special event possible. We could not do it without them!
Raffle Baskets were donated by members. Raffle tickets were available for sale in the Metro West office, before the event, and also at the Topgolf event. Our thanks go out to the donors listed below for the work they put in assembling the baskets and for the many businesses and organizations that donated items to be included in the baskets. There were many happy winners the evening of July 27th!
