Registration Opens for
Popular Citizens Academy Program
Curious about the many services and departments that make up Ontario County government?
Beginning in April, citizens will have the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at County operations with the County’s Citizens Academy.
The Ontario County Citizens Academy will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 PM over six consecutive Tuesdays beginning April 24. The program connects citizens with a variety of County subject matter experts who share insights on County departments and programs, from public works and public health to County finance and economic development, and more.
“A primary goal of the Citizens Academy is to provide a front row perspective into what, why, and how we work to serve our community,” said Ontario County Administrator Mary Krause. “Ontario County government represents an equal measure of great people and great services, and the Academy enables citizens to discover all we have to offer and then, hopefully, they will share what they have learned with their family, friends, and neighbors.”
According to Krause, the Academy, which is free and open to Ontario County residents ages 18 and over, was well-received when it was first introduced last year.
To register, call the County Administrator’s Office at 585-396-4400. Class size is limited. Early registration is strongly recommended.
