Amy Trapp To Sponsor 6th Annual NorCo Citizen Academy
This will be the Academy's sixth year. It is a 10-week program where interested county residents participate in a series of educational presentations from various departments within County government. These include Human Resources, Human Services, Gracedale Nursing Home, Fiscal Affairs, 911 Emergency Operations, Community and Economic Development, Open Space, Public Works, Parks, Bridges, Coroner, Sheriff, District Attorney, Public Defender, DUI, Court of Common Please, District Courts, Constables. There will also be tours of the Juvenile Justice Center and the Northampton County Jail.
Tell Trapp you love biometric punch clocks, and you might get a trip to Vegas, New Orleans or at least a few gift cards and extra bags of popcorn. I'd recommend you skip dinner on the night of your visit with the coroner.
Weekly sessions begin on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, and conclude with a graduation during a County Council meeting on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
You can download a brochure and registration form here. Amazingly, the County lacks the technical expertise to enable residents to register online.
