Congratulations to the 25 below-listed individuals for completing Johnson County Government’s third Citizens Academy program. The Board of County Commissioners recognized and thanked the graduates during the May 4 Board of County Commissioners meeting.
The Citizens Academy participants met for three hours one evening per week for ten weeks this spring to learn about the roles, responsibilities and day-to-day operations of county government. During sessions, the group heard presentations from staff and took tours of various county departments and agencies, including Public Works, Human Services, Libraries, Developmental Supports, Park and Recreation, the Sheriff’s Office and others.
