The first Lake Forest Park Citizens Academy begins on Tuesday, September 22, 2015. The concept of this free, five-session interactive program is to give participants an insider’s firsthand look at how to plug into governance processes, how much services and programs cost, how they are funded, and what the key needs or service gaps are in the eyes of the City and participants.
Due to popular demand, registration for this year's academy is now closed. For those who are not able to attend, information and materials from the presentations will be posted following conclusion of the Academy.
Each class is anticipated to run approximately two hours, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Here is what you can expect each night:
TUESDAY, September 22: LOCAL GOVERNMENT 101
Monday, September 28: MUNICIPAL COURT
Tuesday, October 13: MUNICIPAL SERVICES, HUMAN SERVICES, POLICE DEPARTMENT
Tuesday, October 27: PUBLIC WORKS, ENGINEERING, CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM
Tuesday, November 17: FINANCE, PLANNING & BUILDING
We hope this will be a fun civic lesson!
