Love living here and want to learn more? Go behind the scenes with city staff for a fun, informative look at the City of Keller in our third class of the Keller Citizens Academy!

Participants will enjoy tours, presentations, demonstrations and hands-on activities focused on every aspect of municipal government, from public safety to parks and recreation, community development to library services, and public works to public art. It's the perfect opportunity to learn firsthand how city leaders make the decisions that affect our everyday lives, and how citizens like you can be part of it all.

The 2018 Keller Citizens Academy kicks off Thursday, Sept. 6 and runs from 6-8:30 p.m. every Thursday for 10 weeks (through Thursday, Nov. 8) with graduation celebrated as part of the Keller City Council meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018. Participants will also be asked to attend one City Council meeting of their choice during the program (four available dates), and will have the option of touring Community Waste Disposal's transfer station and materials recovery facility.
