Campbell County Fiscal Court announced that it will again offer a fall citizens’ academy program designed to improve civic education and increase citizen engagement in the workings of the general county government.

After completing the program in 2017, participant Jim Schroer said, “The academy presented fabulous insights into the departments and people that make Campbell County exceptionally well-run and fiscally fit. The county’s future is in good hands.”

A nine-week educational program, the county will select about 30 participants to meet each Monday evening from 6:30-9 p.m., September 9 through November 4.

Presentations on a wide variety of subjects will be given by local elected officials, community partners, and county staff.

Participants will walk away with a first-hand knowledge about their county government from how county tax dollars are put to work to fund basic services to how the county works with various partners to support regional economic growth and outstanding quality of life. A 2018 participant said that she, “was never bored” and that she learned “information that was brand new, even though I’ve lived here my whole life.”

Application deadline is August 23rd. For details and to apply, click here.
