June 18, 2018 – Nevada County is now accepting applications for its 5th year of Citizen’s Academy! Citizen’s Academy offers a behind the scenes look at County government where participants tour six County facilities, and learn from over twenty department presentations that cover a wide range of services from A (Agriculture) to Z (Zoning).

Citizen’s Academy participant, Susan Meagher, said, “I gained a valuable understanding of the scope of county services, as well as insight into the complex budgeting process. I came away with a tremendous respect for the expertise of our county employees and officials.”

Citizen’s Academy takes place on ten consecutive Monday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. starting in late August through early November. Specific dates and topics for each session of Citizen’s Academy can be found on Nevada County’s website or on the Citizen’s Academy flyer.

The goal of Citizen’s Academy is to increase civic engagement within Nevada County and acquaint community leaders with the various functions of County government.

Applications are due July 13th.  Find more information and ways to apply on Nevada County’s website.
