Fulton County’s Citizens’ University begins April 2, 2015 for the 11th consecutive year. The twelve-week intensive training program provides citizens with a close-up view of how their local government works.
Participants can gain a better understanding of County government, the
available services and the role of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners.
Citizens’ University students learn how laws are proposed, passed and amended
and they personally interact with key management personnel. Participants are
urged to take what they learn back to their communities to strengthen ties
between communities and their government and encourage more collaboration to
enhance the quality of life in Fulton County.
The registration fee is $40 and class size is
limited to 30 citizens. All
classes begin at 6:00 p.m. and run from Thursday April 2, 2015 through Thursday, June 11, 2015 with a graduation
ceremony on Thursday, June 18, 2015. The deadline for class registration is
Wednesday, March 25, 2015.
