Salisbury Citizen’s Academy
The City of Salisbury wants you! You are invited to an inside look at your city government as an inaugural member of the Salisbury Citizens Academy.  Applications are now being accepted.
Have you ever wondered how clean water is delivered to your door, or how the Fire Department decides which trucks respond to certain calls?  Join us in the Salisbury Citizens Academy to find out the answer to these and other questions about City government and operations.  
Class Details
The class meets weekly on Thursday evenings beginning September 11, 2014 and ending with a graduation November 6, 2014. 
Classes are free and open to anyone who is at least 16 years of age.  Priority will be given to residents of Salisbury.  Class size is limited to 20.  Applications must be received by July 25, 2014. Citizens who are selected to attend the School of Government must attend at least 9 of the 10 sessions in order to qualify for graduation.
Classes are from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at various City facilities and locations.  Dinner will be provided.
Participants will have an interactive, hands-on opportunity to see just what it takes for a city to operate.  City staff will offer a behind-the-scenes look at fire, police, solid waste, parks and recreation, and more.
