Bismarck to launch first Citizen Academy
Beginning in January 2022 the city of Bismarck will launch its first Citizen Academy. The Bismarck Citizen Academy is an annual, 8-week program that will help participants gain a better understanding of what city government does and how the various departments play a vital role in providing services to the community.
The program aims to inform, develop and engage residents, students and business owners in the city of Bismarck municipal government experience. Participants will get a hands-on, in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at how Bismarck City Government provides high quality service to the community and help them gain a better understanding of what it takes to operate a city.
Participants in the program will interact with leaders in local government, visit city facilities and experience how the city works and builds a network with others who live, work and learn in the community. City commissioners will play a key role in the sessions.
