Academy offers an up-close view into County government

RELEASE DATE: August 3, 2007

TAVARES — Lake County citizens are invited to sign up for the fall edition of the Lake County Citizens’ Academy.

The fall program of the Citizens’ Academy is scheduled for Sept. 27 to Nov. 15 and is offered at no cost to residents. Classes are held each Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at various County Government facilities. The classes provide citizens with information and materials explaining how the various departments within Lake County Government work to serve the community. In addition, the academy allows citizens to ask questions about specific aspects of government operations in an informal setting.

Each week, different branches of County government are featured. For example, a popular class is during the fourth week of the academy when the four divisions of the Department of Public Safety (Fire Rescue, Emergency Management, Animal Services and Communications Systems) convene at the Lake County Animal Shelter.

The facilitator of the academy is Nadine Ohlinger, Training and Wellness Specialist for the Office of Employee Services. Besides learning more about Lake County Government, other benefits of the program are an official class shirt and a certified academy diploma.

For more information and to register for the free eight-week program, call Nadine Ohlinger at 343-9769 or register online at http://www.lakecountyfl.gov/residents/get_involved/citizens_academy.aspx. The academy is limited to 24 citizens and currently 17 seats remain open.
