The City of Milton proudly offers its Citizens Government Academy in which residents learn firsthand from City employees and get a behind-the-scenes look at how Milton's government operates.
This eight-week course gives participants a unique perspective into many functions of municipal government. When in session, classes meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9 p.m. at City Hall and various government buildings in Milton, allowing participants to fully experience City facilities.
Through a combination of presentations and hands-on projects, participants learn about vital community services including emergency services, law enforcement, planning and zoning, finance and budget, court systems, public works, special projects, parks and recreation, and more. Most importantly, CGA participants connect with local officials and the City staff members who provide these services. Weekly instructors vary depending upon the City service or department being covered that week.
Each class is limited to 15 participants, who must be 21 years old and a Milton resident or business owner. The City has held four iterations of its Citizens Government Academy -- the most recent occurring over the first three months of 2020 -- and hopes to have more in the coming months.
