Lower Saucon Township has announced that it will host having a six-week Citizens Academy, for which township residents are being encouraged to register.
The academy, which was proposed last year by township councilman David Willard, is being conducted to educate and involve residents in the functions of township government.
"The goal of the Citizens Academy is to foster a better relationship between township government and its constituents, while providing the foundation for greater citizen participation on the township’s boards, commissions and authorities," according to an online brochure posted on the township's website (also see attached file).
Classes will be held Thursdays from 7 to 8pm in Seidersville Hall, 3700 Old Philadelphia Pike, beginning on March 7, 2013.
Class size is limited to 25 residents, with a minimum of 10 registrants needed for the class to form.
A registration form for the academy is available for download on the township's website (also see attached file).
The deadline to register is Feb. 22.
