Local Citizens’ Academy accepting registration for spring 2013

By

Gainesville’s Citizens’ Academy gives residents a close look at their local government by taking them behind closed doors at the city’s police, fire rescue and regional utilities departments.

The academy is accepting registration for the spring 2013 series of sessions, which is scheduled to begin Wednesday and end April 17. Classes will be held Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to noon, and class space is limited to 30 people.

Over the course of six weeks, we think citizens become well-informed about their local government,” said Bob Woods, Gainesville communications and marketing manager. “Any questions they may have had about why the city does things in a certain manner — we answer those questions for them.”
