Titusville - If you have ever wondered how the city's solid waste division works, what the police department looks like inside, how the city's budget is set, or how the fire department responds to emergencies, the City of Titusville has the course for you.
The city will host its third annual Citizens' Academy designed to give the participant's insight into its inner workings. Beginning May 4, 2006, City Manager, Thomas Harmer and other city employees will become part-time Titusville Government 101 Instructors. The free, three-hour classes start at 6 P.M. The first class will be at City Hall. Subsequent classes will meet at various locations every Thursday for a total of six weeks.
The deadline for registration is May 2, 2006. There is no charge to attend the Academy. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
Participants who complete the course will receive a Certificate of Completion and be recognized by the City Council during a regularly scheduled City Council meeting.
Seating is limited and residents will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be age 18 or older and live in the Titusville area. Jim Thomas with the Community Relations Division stated that last year's classes filled up very quickly due to an overwhelming response by local residents. Classes are limited to 25 people.
