Citizens Leadership Academy is an annual program held each fall in conjunction with the City of Peoria. Participants will tour City and County facilities and talk with elected and appointed officials. Our aim is to help citizens understand how their local governments work, the resources they offer and the challenges they face.
Each session takes place at either a County of Peoria or City of Peoria building and usually involves a presentation, tour and time for questions and answers. Some sessions also provide refreshments.
The tentative schedule for 2018 is as follows:
September 11—County Overview
September 13—City Overview
September 20—Peoria City/County Health Department
September 25—Fire Department
September 27—Coroner’s Office
October 2—Public Works
October 4—Peoria County Sheriff's Office
October 9—City Council
October 11—County Board meeting
The finalized schedule will be distributed at the first event.
