MARTIN COUNTY -- Residents of Martin County currently have the opportunity to see how their local government is run. The county is accepting registrations for the next citizen's academy class.

The class is part of the county's resource education series, and takes place about twice a year. The next opportunity like this won't take place until fall 2013.

The class begins March 7, and will take place over six weekly sessions.

According to a press release, the participants in the class will hear presentations from all the departments under the county commissioners as well as the county's constitutional officers.

"We are looking to increase our citizen's awareness and understanding of the variety of services offered by the Martin County government," said Gabriella Ferraro, an administrator with the county.

Speakers will include representatives from the sheriff's office and the tax collector's office.

But it's not all just sitting in a room listening to seminars. Participants will also take part in many field trips, including a visit to Martin County schools, the local jail and even the emergency operations center.

Transportation and refreshments are provided during the class.

Residents have to register in advance to participate.

For more information or to sign up, call (772) 220-7129.
