Lower Saucon Township has announced that it will hold another of its Citizens Academy programs beginning in March.
The first Citizens Academy—which was held in 2013—proved to be popular, according to the township.
The Citizens Academy is modeled after similar academies in the City of Bethlehem and Northampton County, and provides an overview of programs and services provided by the township.
It also allows residents to see how their tax dollars are spent.
The classes will be 90-minute sessions held over a six-week period beginning on Thursday, March 6. They will be led by Lower Saucon Township council members, Township Manager Jack Cahalan, Police Chief Guy Lesser, Finance Director Cathy Gorman, Zoning Officer Chris Garges and Director of Public Works Roger Rasich, in addition to volunteers from some of the organizations that support the township’s operations.
Tours of the police station and public works department have been added to the program beginning this year.
Class size will be limited to 25 residents.
Registration for the academy can be done online at http://www.lowersaucontownship.org/pdf/citizensacademyfinal.pdf or by contacting Diane Palik at the township at 610-865-3291.
