Dear Community Member,

We cordially invite you to participate in the Town of Beloit Citizens Academy this spring of 2019! The Citizens Academy is an educational program that asks citizens, business owners and employees, and community partners to learn about how our local government is organized. This includes learning about how services are funded and delivered in an interactive and fun atmosphere. The academy will run 9 consecutive weeks starting Wednesday, April 10th and ending Wednesday, June 12th with a graduation dinner. During this academy, you will learn about public services such as Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Services, Public Works, Utilities, and Administration. Our goal is to create and strengthen a partnership with our community members. We can learn from each other to make the Town of Beloit an even greater place to live and work. Some topics that will be covered are:

Tour of all Town Facilities

Budget Preparation, Elections, Administration

Public Works and Sewer Utility Operations

Police Firearms and Use of Force

Drug & Crime Scene Investigation

Active Shooter & Rescue Task Force Training

Community Policing

Fire Suppression and EMS

Please visit our website https://townofbeloit.org/government/citizen-academy/ to complete and return the application/waiver to the Beloit Town Hall c/o Liane Mills. The application is due March 29th, 2018. There is a limited number of spots available. A commitment to the entire class schedule is strongly encouraged; however, we are aware that life happens and one or two misses are acceptable. We are confident that this will be a rewarding experience and look forward to learning from and teaching each other.
