The Keller Citizens Academy is a free, 10-week program designed to take residents behind the scenes of city government. Join us for a series of presentations, tours, demonstrations and more to learn about everything from parks to police, public works to public arts and everything in between. Applicants must be Keller residents aged 21 or older and registered to vote in the City of Keller. Each class of the Keller Citizens Academy is limited to 14 students.
The 2019 Keller Citizens Academy will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. on 10 consecutive Thursdays beginning Sept. 5, 2019 with graduation scheduled at the Keller City Council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019. Applicants should be prepared to attend at least eight of the 10 sessions in order to graduate.
Most sessions will be held at Keller Town Hall, 1100 Bear Creek Pkwy. Others will be held at city facilities, including the Keller Police Department, Fire Station 1, the Municipal Service Center, the Keller Senior Activities Center and the Keller Public Library. Participants will also be required to attend one of four Keller City Council meetings scheduled during the course, and will have the option to join the Keller High School Citizens Academy group for a tour of Community Waste Disposal's transfer station and materials recovery facility the morning of Thursday, Sept. 26.
