City government touches so many facets of our everyday lives – from the streets we drive on to the clean water that we drink. We know that our trash is picked up every week, and that help is minutes away should we ever have to dial 9-1-1 in an emergency. But exactly how does our city operate?
The city created the citizens’ leadership academy in 2016 to promote a deeper understanding of what local government does and how it works. The academy includes six evening meetings, which are a combination of tours, speakers, interactive participation and Q&A sessions. Participants will learn more about the function of city government, ongoing programs and services, and meet new people.
The cost is FREE and the only commitment is that participants are asked to attend all sessions. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis; class size is limited to 20 participants. Light refreshments will be served.

The next leadership academy will take place in spring 2021.
