Residents can learn how Snoqualmie works when the Citizens Academy returns for another session.
The city of Snoqualmie offers the free seven-week course for citizens to get a first-hand look at how government works.
Interactive, informal sessions are led by officials and include tours of city facilities.
The course will begin with a look back at Snoqualmie’s history and a look to the future. Over the seven weeks, participants will learn what a Mayor-Council form of government is; where city revenues come from; where property taxes go; who is responsible for capital planning; how public safety programs are put into action; how citizens can be more involved in the decisions that influence quality of life; and much more.
The course begins Thursday, Sept. 16. Space for this free course is limited to 30 participants. The curriculum and applications are available on the city website at www.cityofsnoqualmie.org below “Community Activities” or at Snoqualmie City Hall, 38624 SE River Street.
