The City of Baytown recently recognized the latest Baytown Civic Academy. Residents in the fourth cohort have had the opportunity to meet city employees from various departments, while also getting behind-the-scenes tours of the Fire Training Field, the 911 Center, Public Works, and many more.
Seeing their local government in action has been an eye-opening, hands-on way to create better communication as well as more trust between citizens and municipal government.
The City will be offering another chance to participate in the Civic Academy this upcoming Spring. The program is open to anyone over the age of 18 living or working in Baytown.
