City of Abilene sent out a release Friday noting it is accepting applications for the 2012-13 City University program.
From city of Abilene spokesman Callie Harris:
The City of Abilene is now accepting applications for the 2012/13 City University program. Applications can be obtained on the City’s website, www.abilenetx.com, at City Hall in Room 101 and the Mayor’s office, and at all three City libraries. Interested citizens may apply through September 10th.
City University is a community leadership and involvement program that offers a way for participants to become better informed about City programs and services. Each class learns how to access government and elected officials and explores the value of serving on City boards and commissions. Participants go behind the scenes of City of Abilene facilities, find out how various divisions operate and meet City employees who deliver the services they count on throughout the year.
Sessions will begin Thursday, Sept. 20, and will take place once a month from 1:30 to 7 p.m., continuing through May. Participants are asked to attend seven of the nine classes to graduate. Tuition for City University is $50.
Over the past six years, City University has graduated over 200 participants from the program. Each class is made up of a diverse group of citizens who come from the Abilene community.
