The Town of Weaverville hosts an annual Citizens’ Academy to promote open dialogue and provide the community with education about the workings of town government. Any resident is welcome to participate. The curriculum covers current town programs, services, policies, procedures, plus a “behind the scenes” look at how Weaverville’s government operates.
The Weaverville Citizens’ Academy offers citizens insight into how the town functions with workshop sessions led by town department heads, town staff, and elected officials.Most sessions are held at the given department, which allows department staff to provide a tour. An overview of the department functions, along with a question-and-answer session at the end of each program are also part of each session.
Students of the Weaverville Citizens’ Academy are given a foundation of knowledge regarding town government and services. This foundation and interaction with the town’s key department staff creates a stronger, informed community, which makes it easier for the town government to function smoothly. Sessions are held once per month, January through July, every third Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. The award of certificates and final wrap-up of the annual Weaverville Citizens’ Academy is held in July.
In order to graduate, participants are expected to attend at least five of the seven sessions and attend one Weaverville Town Council meeting. Application to the program is required. Applications may be sent to Weaverville Town Manager Selena Coffey via mail at P.O. Box 338, Weaverville, NC 28787, or via email at [email protected]. Applications may also be hand-delivered to the Weaverville Town Hall, 30 South Main Street.
