Pinecrest is offering a Citizen Academy. Pinecrest residents can learn more about their village government

A great idea.  This is a good project for municipalities.  It would be a good project for Palmetto Bay now that we have moved out of the initial formation period. These programs are good for more that just residents. Elected officials can profit from them as well.

Palmetto Bay, Cutler Bay and South Miami take note. This information is taken from the official Pinecrest e-news.  CLICK HERE to read the full e-mail. This program is for residents of Pinecrest.

Learn More About Your Municipal Government
What is the Citizen Academy?  The Pinecrest Citizen Academy is a great way for Pinecrest citizens to learn more about their municipal government and how municipal operations affect the quality of life in the Village of Pinecrest.  The six-week educational program consists of interactive presentations by the various departments of the Village government and is intended to familiarize citizens with the function and purpose of municipal government.    The graduates of the academy will receive recognition for their time and participation with a ceremony and reception.   The tentative schedule of sessions is as follows:

  Session 1 - Tuesday, March 12, 2013, 7:00 p.m. (Orientation/Budget/Finance)
  Session 2 - Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 7:00 p.m. (Council/Administration/Legal)
