Town Announces First Offering of “PBO 101” Citizen’s Academy, Registration Available
PITTSBORO, NC - The Town of Pittsboro is proud to announce the start of our Citizen’s Academy, known as “PBO 101.”
PBO 101 is an eight-week course designed to offer participants an educational and interactive learning experience on the workings of the Town government.
The curriculum will cover current Town programs, services, and procedures and offer an in-depth look at several Town departments, including Administration/Finance, Police, Planning/Downtown, Parks and Recreation, Engineering, Utilities/Public Works, Emergency Management, and the Governing Board. To ensure that participants have the chance to discuss and communicate with Town staff and leaders and participate in the practical exercises, the class size is limited to 20 participants.
Senior Town staff will lead each session at the Town Offices at Main Street Station (287 East St) from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The final session will consist of dinner and conversation in small groups with the Town’s Commissioners. The time and location of the final session will be communicated to participants during the academy.
Requirements to participate in the program, a tentative course schedule, and registration instructions can be found by CLICKING HERE or visiting https://pittsboronc.gov/420/PBO-101---Citizens-Academy.
