Nevada County is now accepting applications for its 5th annual Citizen’s Academy.
Citizen’s Academy offers a behind-the-scenes look at the ins and outs of County government. Participants will tour six County facilities and learn from over twenty department presentations covering a wide range of services from A (Agriculture) to Z (Zoning).
This is a unique opportunity to learn about the people, places, and programs that make our County government work. Have you ever wondered how the County plans for emergencies, who develops the County’s annual budget, or what it’s like to serve time in our jail? This is your chance to ask those questions and more.
Citizen’s Academy takes place on ten consecutive Monday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., starting in late August and running through early November. Specific dates and topics for each session of Citizen’s Academy can be found on Nevada County’s website or on the Citizen’s Academy flyer.
There is no cost to participate. A simple meal is provided at each session.
Applications are due July 13th. Apply online or drop off your printed application at the Rood Administrative Center at 950 Maidu Avenue, Suite 220, in Nevada City.
