Florida City Government Week, held annually in Oct., is an opportunity for cities across the state to "celebrate, showcase and engage citizens" in the workings of local government. According to the Florida League of Cities (FLC) website, 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the celebration. It has brought awareness to the local government's role in the lives of thousands of Florida residents.

Municipal government is a citizen's closest form of government, yet many remain unaware of how city services impact their lives. This year's focus was teaching residents about local government importance. Civic engagement activities such as visiting school classrooms or inviting residents to tour the town hall were encouraged during the celebratory week, Oct. 18 – 24, 2021.

Martin County School District expressed their sentiment for Indiantown's governing body in a written statement: "We appreciate the Village Council for their commitment to our Indiantown Schools."
