[ARCHIVED] 2017 Citizens Academy Applications Due Next Week

December 9, 2016 – Residents still have time to apply for the City of Midland’s 2017 Citizens Academy – a free, 10-week course that gives citizens an up-close and personal look at how local government functions. Applications will be accepted until Thursday, December 15 at 5:00 p.m.

Up to 25 citizens will be selected to participate in the academy, which is comprised of 10 two-hour sessions held at various City and County facilities throughout Midland. The academy will take place each consecutive Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:30 p.m. from January 11 to March 15, 2017.

Through presentations and facility tours, each session will demonstrate the role and responsibility of the City of Midland’s various departments and the services they provide to the community. Participants will also gain a better understanding of the role Midland City government plays in the quality of life that Midlanders enjoy. Participants will also hear from other organizations that help shape our community, including Midland County government, Midland Tomorrow, and the Midland County Historical Society.

Citizens may fill out an online application at or can fill out and mail a hard copy application, which can be found at the information desk in Midland City Hall or the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library reference desk. Participants selected for the 2017 academy will be notified by December 30, 2016.

Midland residency is not required to be considered for the academy; however, if there are more applicants than available spaces, first preference will be given to those living in the City. 

For questions or further information about the academy, contact the City Manager’s Office at 989-837-3307.
