Garden City’s Citizens Academy 2018 will begin in Garden City March 22. Interested residents are invited to take part and learn more about the day-to-day activities of local government.

“Citizens Academy is a chance for residents to go behind-the-scenes of local government,” said Communication & Project Manager Ashley Freburg. “It’s a chance for you to learn what roles government plays in your everyday life.”  

Citizens Academy is a nine-week civic engagement course. Participants meet weekly for approximately three hours on Thursday evenings. The group will tour the Airport, the City Administrative Center, Lee Richardson Zoo, and other City facilities. Presentations will be given by the Fire Department, Police Department, Public Utilities, Public Works, Buffalo Dunes Golf Course, and more. Dinner will be served each week. 

Applications are available now, and seating is limited. If you are interested in participating, please visit to fill out an application by March 16. There is no cost to participate.
