On May 10, 2022, the City of Miramar launched its Local Government Academy. The City’s Go Local Government Academy (GLGA) is a program designed to offer its residents and all interested participants an opportunity to learn how their local government works and how they can get more involved in their city.
The participants will learn about the relationships between them as residents, the City Commission, and the City Administration, how and why projects are implemented, and the way services are provided as well as the various programs the city has available to assist residents. They will also learn about garbage collection, water safety, street paving and other projects and topics including cultural arts and special events.
An overview will be provided of how taxpayer dollars are budgeted, planning processes, and many other responsibilities and functions of city government. Each session will be conducted by a department representative and will provide informational and interactive learning approaches.
The program is from May 10, 2022 through June 28, 2022, with the culmination of a graduation at the last commission meeting on July 6, 2022. Please see photos of the inaugural class with the Mayor, City Administration, Police, Fire, City Clerk and Utility departments and the interaction thus far.
Sessions are held at the Miramar Police Community Room located at 11765 City Hall Promenade. Find out about the next class by calling 954-602-3091 and get involved. See you at the next class!
