Austin wants you! (maybe)
Tuesday, July 10, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
Applications are now open for the CityWorks Academy. The academy, according to the city’s website, is “an inside look at Austin government – a unique opportunity for Austinites to learn about the City’s governmental processes, its procedures and the people who deliver these services through a series of 14 weekly classes.” Classes are on Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m., with one Tuesday class, and start on Sept. 5. Each class is led by city staff – 44 departments are involved, and applications are open to anyone living in Austin (aside from city employees). The application deadline is July 21. Classes are limited and based on application, though participation is free.
