In part 5 of this series, I have the pleasure of chatting with Rick Getschow, City Manager for Eden Prairie, Minnesota, to dive into his city's approach to community engagement. Matt Fulton and Michelle Kobayashi from Polco join us as well to talk more about their suite of survey and engagement tools. We'll learn what made Eden Prairie choose Polco and what you should know as well in your search for an appropriate vendor.

In this short series, we’re talking all about Citizen Engagement. I’ll be highlighting some of the innovators in local government leveraging available tools to better engage with the communities they serve.
Our goal is to expose more local governments to the tools available to help by efficiently providing useful information about some of the leading products out there. We’d love it if you could spend less time finding and researching products and hopefully get to launching your digital efforts to engage with your residents more quickly. Stay tuned for more episodes on leading citizen engagement tools and the innovators in local government putting their products to use.

You can listen to the full episode or learn more about innovative strategies local governments around the world are taking to navigate new digital tools, better engage with the breadth of their constituency and more on the Govlaunch Podcast.
