Live and Learn in Hennepin County – Registration Open for Citizen Academy

Wondering where to dump your old PC?  Considering adoption?  Need a permit or license for whatever?  Unclear about voting sites and procedures?  Require emergency medical assistance?  Wondering about your property tax – when, where and what?  Looking for a good book?  A bike map?  A park in your neighborhood?

Whatever your information or service need, if you live in Hennepin County you’ll probably find yourself working with and through Hennepin County – whether you know it not.

To deal with the massive information needs of Hennepin County residents the County Board has approved a resolution in support of The Hennepin County Citizen Academy.

In short order, the County has a plan for the Academy which will open its virtual doors this fall.

In six sessions, beginning Wednesday, September 14, representatives of the County will cover the basics. The sessions will be held each Wednesday evening through October 26 (excluding Rosh Hashanah) 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at sites throughout the County.  Each session will include a tour or interactive learning opportunity.  For a complete schedule and listing of sites – and a quick video intro to Hennepin County services, check the Citizen Academy website.

 Applications are due August 4  (which, you may be too busy or too hot tonotice, is just around the proverbial corner.)  Interested residents should call 612 348 5130 or email citizenacademy@co.hennepin.mn.us to leave their name, phone and address.  Applicant names will be placed into a lottery for consideration for one of the 35 available seats.

Questions? Email citizensacademy@co.hennepin.mn.us or  call 612 348 5130 or check the website link included above.
