The Citizen Academy is an in-depth look at the functions of local government designed to help citizens become more informed and involved in the community. Classes will include an overview of Police, Fire, Public Works, Utilities, Community Development, Economic Development, Finance, Administration, Parks & Recreation, and Transportation. After the success of the first class during Fall 2012, the City of Danville is excited to offer the Citizen Academy to our residents who wish to learn more about their community.
The Citizen Academy will meet on Thursdays from 7pm -9pm, June through August at the Municipal Building. Optional tours will be offered on selected Saturdays. Each session will be led by a facilitator and feature presentations by city employees - with plenty of time for discussion and questions.
Participation is open to residents of Danville, 18 years and older. Space is limited to 25 participants. There is a cost of $25.
