Curious about how your city government works? Want a behind the scenes look at everything from the Police Department to land use planning to the wastewater treatment plant? Then the Murfreesboro Citizens Academy is the place for you!
Beginning on February 3, 2014 and running through March 24, 2014, the Citizens Academy will meet weekly on Monday evenings from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. The cost of the Citizens Academy is $25.00. Classes will be held in City Hall at 111 W. Vine Street unless otherwise indicated.
Class size is limited, and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The City will begin accepting applications promptly at 8:00am on Monday, December 16, 2013. In fairness, no applications will be accepted before the specified timeframe. The class is open to all City residents, City employees, and people who may not live in the City of Murfreesboro but work or own property in the City.
Class participants will be expected to attend at least one City Council meeting during the two months the Citizens Academy is scheduled and may only miss one class in order to graduate.
