Citizens Academy Offers Inside Look at County Government

Fort Thomas resident Joe Schwerling completed the academy in 2017.
Last year, Campbell County piloted its first Citizens Academy, an eight-week education program open to all county citizens interested in learning more about the workings of county government. The program was a success, prompting the county to bring it back for spring 2018.

The county is taking applications until February 15 for its second academy, which will run Monday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m., February 26 through April 16.


About 30 applicants will be selected to attend the popular program that will cover a wide range of subjects including emergency management, county budgeting, public safety, road work and transportation issues, land use and zoning and other topics. Participants will hear from county staff and leaders of departments involved in each topic.

"I am glad we can offer a spring session of the Campbell County Citizens' Academy," said Judge/Executive Steve Pendery in a recent press release. "Our goal for this program is to share information about the county’s structure and services with more people; my hope is that more citizens will become interested and more engaged in the important public work that we do."

An application and more information is available on the Campbell County website.
