Have you ever wondered how much of your taxes stay in Scotts Valley? Do you know where funds come from for schools, library, water or fire service? Are you curious about what’s happening with parks, streets or new development projects?
If these questions interest you, the City of Scotts Valley invites interested residents to apply to participate in the Citizens Academy. This City hosted educational series will take place across 7 Tuesday evenings, starting February 13th through March 26th. Participants will hear from each of the City’s departments as well as the School, Fire and Water Districts.
Each evening will be packed with information - we’ll talk budget, services, priorities, projects and give you an inside look at how local government functions. The program will include tours of facilities, games and activities to help participants better understand how government works.
We’ll be accepting between 15-25 participants to ensure that everyone has time to ask questions and fully participate in activities. It will be important that participants commit to all sessions and arrive on time. A light dinner will be served with each session, starting at 5:00. We wrap up by 8:00pm.
Applications are due by February 2nd. Please click HERE for the application.
