Sign-ups begin for Snoqualmie Citizens Academy

The city of Snoqualmie is again offering a free course for citizens to get a first-hand look at how Snoqualmie’s government works. Sessions are informal, interactive and fun. Sessions will include tours of city facilities.

The Citizens Academy will be held 6 to 8:30 p.m. on six consecutive Wednesdays, Sept. 9 through Oct.14, at the Snoqualmie Police Department, plus one Saturday session.

The course will begin with a look back at Snoqualmie’s history and ahead to the city's future. Participants will learn what a Mayor-Council form of government is; where city revenues come from and where property taxes go; who is responsible for capital planning; how public safety programs are put into action; and how citizens can be more involved in the decisions that influence the quality of life in Snoqualmie.

Citizens Academy curriculum and applications are available on the city Web site,, or at Snoqualmie City Hall, 8020 Railroad Ave. S.E.
