"Citizen's Academy was a great learning experience on how local government works in the city of Grandview.
It motivated me to want to serve in some capacity after getting insight on all of the hard work
that goes into making our city great." --Alderman Damon Randolph, Ward I
The best way to learn about your city is from the people who run it.
The Grandview Citizens Academy offers the opportunity for every resident to get up close to the equipment needed for different jobs, watch demonstrations, tour all City facilities and parks, and get in on a budget exercise where YOU tell us how you would spend the money.
The Citizens Academy is a FREE 4-week course on Thursday nights from 6 p.m.-8 p.m starting March 22. Over the years, more than 100 residents have graduated from the Grandview Citizens Academy and some have even been appointed to City Commissions. Alderman Damon Randolph stood out at the Citizens Academy and was appointed Alderman before he was eventually elected by citizens.

MARCH 22: PUBLIC WORKS AND PARKS & RECREATION
MARCH 29: FIRE AND POLICE
APRIL 5: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
