Citizens academy to return
The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners announces applications are being accepted on a first-come, first-selected basis for the third annual Calvert County Government Citizens Academy. The informative nine-week program is tailored for residents interested in learning more about the inner workings of local government.
From public safety, recreation programs and road maintenance to water service, senior programs, building codes and public outreach, county government performs a vital role in the well-being of the community, a press release states. The citizens academy will meet every Thursday evening, Jan. 10 through March 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. and will offer residents an in-depth look at how the government works. The free initiative features site visits and discussions with county employees who will give residents a unique insight into their daily work.
The 2019 Calvert County Government Citizens Academy program is accepting applications for up to 25 county residents 18 years of age or older. To learn more about the academy schedule and application process, go to www.calvertcountymd. gov/CitizensAcademy or call 410-535-2003.
