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 fourth 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 Keller Citizens Academy course runs for 10 weeks on Thursday evenings, 6-8:30 p.m. In order to graduate, participants must attend at least eight of the 10 weeks.

Participants will also be required to attend one City Council meeting during the course of the program, and will have the option of joining the Keller High School Citizens Academy group for a daytime field trip to the Community Waste Disposal Transfer Station/Materials Recovery Facility in Dallas on Sept. 26.
