The citizens' academy will consist of 10 sessions, which are designed to educate participants about the city and encourage more involvement, according to a press release from the city.
The weekly sessions begin Feb. 6, and will end on April 10. The citizens' academy is free and open to the public; however, there is a 30 person limit. Enrollment is based on a first come, first served basis.
Sessions will cover a variety of topics ranging from government and culture to local media and public safety. More than 90 people have graduated from the Citizens’ Academy since its inception.

Include your occupation, employer, brief highlights of current volunteer activity and one sentence on why you want to participate in the citizens’ academy.
