12-13-18 Killeen Citizens Academy Accepting Applications for 2019 Class

The City of Killeen is now accepting applications for the 2019 Killeen Citizens Academy. Applications are due January 10.

The academy is a nine-week session designed to give citizens an inside look at their municipal government. Each class details a different department, function or program of municipal government. Participants will receive detailed presentations, interact with staff and elected officials and tour various facilities.

“We’re excited to bring this valuable program back to our residents,” said Hilary Shine, executive director of communications. “Previous graduates have used what they learned to become more active in our community, and many have gone on to be elected to City Council and appointed to boards and commissions.”

The 2019 academy is scheduled January 24 through March 28. Classes are held on Thursdays from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at various City facilities. There is no cost to enroll.

To be eligible to participate, citizens must be at least 18 years of age, may not be running for political office and may not be involved in litigation with the City of Killeen. Residents of Killeen and Fort Hood will be given priority enrollment.

Graduation requirements include attendance at all sessions and at least one City Council meeting and workshop.

Applications and detailed information are available online at KilleenTexas.gov/Communications. Completed applications are due no later than January 10. Selected participants will be notified January 14.
