Have you ever wondered how clean water is delivered to your door, or how the Fire Department decides which trucks respond to certain calls? The Salisbury Citizens Academy helps citizens find out the answer to these and other questions about City government and operations. Applications are open until August 31, apply at salisburync.gov/CitizensAcademy.
The class meets weekly on Thursday evenings beginning in early September and ending with a graduation in November. One class may be held on a Saturday to allow for additional time.
Classes are free and open to anyone who is at least 16 years of age. Priority will be given to residents of Salisbury. Class size is limited to 20.
Classes are from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at various City facilities and locations. Dinner will be provided.
Participants will have an interactive, hands-on opportunity to see just what it takes for a city to operate. City staff will offer a behind-the-scenes look at fire, police, solid waste, parks and recreation, and more.
