CityWorks applications due soon
Thursday, June 11, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Starting June 15 and running through July 24, the city of Austin will accept applications for the CityWorks Academy, which offers Austinites a chance to get a behind-the-scenes look at city operations. According to a press release about the program, “The academy provides an opportunity for Austinites to get involved in local government and to learn first-hand about the programs and services the City provides directly from the people who deliver them. Participants will have the chance to learn the ‘A to Z’ of City operations in 12 sessions. Classes will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and some Wednesdays, Sept. 8 through Dec. 15 at various City facilities. The CityWorks Academy will be led by City of Austin Executive Team members, Department Directors and other City staff who will share information about the City’s operations and discuss key issues facing this community.” Additionally, Mayor Steve Adler and City Council will participate in the sessions. Applications are available at the City Hall third-floor reception area or online here. The program’s enrollment is limited to 35.
