It was a good place to experience how local government worked and how it interacted with the local community and to see what goes into it day to day..

Lacking variety and change.ok if you get on with management. Most of the workers are great to work with. But sadly, I got to work with a individual who was a total idiot. (Small man's syndrome)
Pros

Cons

unappreciation and acknowledgement by other departments of scope of work
