Have you ever wondered about the inner workings of local government? The City of Clovis is offering a two-day workshop to explain the city’s history, its various departments and about its elected officials’ vision for the city and its almost 110,000 people.
Residents of the town can now apply for the 2019 Clovis Citizens Academy online or by phone.
Over the course of the two days, attendees will tour Old Town Clovis to hear about how it got its start and what it might look like in the future. They will also hear from council members and staff about major projects planned throughout the city.
Tours of Clovis Police and Fire departments will also be given with the chance to ask Police Chief Curt Fleming and Fire Chief John Binaski questions regarding technology and techniques used.
“We are excited for the opportunity to engage with Clovis residents for this 2019 Academy,” said Luke Serpa, city manager for the City of Clovis. “The hope is that they will walk away fro the experience with additional knowledge about how their city operates and with a passion to become more involved in the process.”
The citizens academy will take place on Sept. 18 and 25 between 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. There is no cost to attend and dinners will be provided. The deadline to apply is the end of the business day Aug. 1. The phone number for applications is 559-324-2436.
