Apply for County’s 2019 Citizen’s Academy!

Nevada County is now accepting applications for its sixth year of Citizen’s Academy.

Citizen’s Academy offers a behind the scenes look at County government where participants tour six County facilities and learn from over twenty department presentations that cover a wide range of services from A (agriculture) to Z (zoning).

Citizen’s Academy participant Susan Meagher said, “I gained a valuable understanding of the scope of County services, as well as insight into the complex budgeting process. I came away with a tremendous respect for the expertise of our County employees and officials.”

Citizen’s Academy takes place on 10 consecutive Monday evenings, from 5-7:30 p.m., starting in late August through early November. Specific dates and topics for each session of Citizen’s Academy can be found on Nevada County’s website “Opens a New Window.”

The goal of Citizen’s Academy is to increase civic engagement within Nevada County and acquaint community leaders with the various functions of County government.
