The Salisbury Citizen’s Academy, a 10-week academy in which residents learn firsthand about city operations, is now accepting applications for class members.
The Citizen’s Academy, now in its seventh year, is held on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 8 p.m., beginning Thursday, Sept. 3 through Thursday, Nov. 5. Participants will receive an inside view of various city departments each week, discovering greater understanding of how and why Salisbury provides its municipal services. This year, virtual experiences will be incorporated along with hands-on experiences that include learning how the city budget is created with the finance department, using the Jaws of Life at the fire department and playing recreational activities offered with parks and recreation. Dinner is served at each class.
In order to provide a safe environment for both participants and staff, class size will be limited to 12. The deadline for applications for the City of Salisbury Citizen’s Academy is Friday, July 17,
at 5 p.m.
