City Hosts Brainstorming Session for 2012 Citizen Academy Series

Next year's series of workshops will enable residents to develop civic knowledge in advance of Redmond's 2013-2014 budget setting process.

The City of Redmond's Citizen Academy will return in early 2012, and organizers are hosting a brainstorming session on Dec. 14 to gather input and ideas for the new series.

This year's Citizen Academy will take place before the city's budgeting-by-priorities process, enabling participants to enhance their civic knowledge before providing input on the city's 2013-2014 budget.

The Dec. 14 brainstorming session will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. at the . For more information, call Kimberly Dietz at 556-2415 or visit www.redmond.gov/residents/citizenacademy.
