Citizens Governmet Academy

Citizens are invited to participate in Claremore's Government Academy. You will acquire a better understanding of your city’s government and services, as well as intergovernmental relationships. City officials will, in turn, gain valuable insights into citizens’ priorities and needs from your involvement. Take advantage of this civic opportunity by participating in this open forum on city goals and community values.

Residents and members of the business community are encouraged to apply for enrollment in the 2009 Claremore Citizens Government Academy, initiated by City Management staff to strengthen the relationship between citizens and local government. Class size is limited to 20 people per session and participation is free. Participants will be selected by the City of Claremore.

The Academy will consist of 8 informational sessions, featuring presentations by representatives from city departments, and will be held weekly at city facilities. The class will meet every Thursday beginning September 17 and ending November 12 (except October 15 which we will be taking off to accommodate Fall Break schedules). Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all 8 sessions. Graduates will be recognized at the City Council meeting on Monday, November 16. You can view and print the schedule (PDF) for the 8 week fall class now.
