For Hometown News

Applications are being accepted for Volusia County's Citizens Academy, a hands-on awareness program designed to educate citizens about county government operations.

Classes will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays from Aug. 21 through Oct. 30. The final class is scheduled for Nov. 12.

There is no charge for the program.

Applicants are asked to commit to attending all 12 classes.

Members will meet at various county facilities. They also will view county construction projects and shadow a county administrator.

Topics will include growth management, community services, public protection, property assessments and budgets.

Basic knowledge of computers is helpful as class materials are posted online and email is used to communicate.

Applications are available at www.volusia.org/citizensacademy and must be turned in to the county manager's office by July 25. The program is limited to 25 participants.

For information, contact Cindy Finney at (386) 740-5160.
