The Grandview 2017 Citizens Academy is a FREE 8-session program designed to provide community members with a better understanding of the workings of their local government. The Citizens Academy will cover a wide range of topics, such as: how the annual budget is developed; how public safety resources are deployed; and what the city does to promote and support the local economy - to name just a few. The goal of the Grandview Citizens Academy is to better equip the community to fully participate in the process of building Grandview’s future! Don’t miss the chance of learning more about how we can work together to provide the best service possible and make Grandview a better place to live.
