Citizens Academy Update
Town department heads met recently to plan the new Southern Pines Citizens Academy. Each month from October through May, participants in the academy will meet at a town department for a behind the scenes tour and an in depth presentation about the department's services. The first session will take place at the Fire Department on Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants and there are still slots open in the program. Applications are available at Town departments and on the Town's website. If citizens are unsure if they are able to commit to the full schedule of sessions, but would like to attend this opening class, they may call the Library at 910-692-8235 to register for the single session, as space permits.
