Citizens' Academy Accepting Applications

Today, Campbell County Fiscal Court announced that it will again offer a fall citizens’ academy program designed to improve civic education and increase citizen engagement in the workings of the general county government. After completing the program in 2017, participant Jim Schroer said, “The academy presented fabulous insights into the departments and people that make Campbell County exceptionally well-run and fiscally fit. The county’s future is in good hands.”

A nine-week educational program, the county will select about 30 participants to meet each Monday evening from 6:30-9:00pm, September 9 through November 4. Presentations on a wide variety of subjects will be given by local elected officials, community partners, and county staff. Participants will walk away with a first-hand knowledge about their county government from how county tax dollars are put to work to fund basic services to how the county works with various partners to support regional economic growth and outstanding quality of life. A 2018 participant said that she, “was never bored” and that she learned “information that was brand new, even though I’ve lived here my whole life.”

“Our goal in delivering this program is to share information about the county’s structure and services with more people; if we are successful, my hope is that more citizens will become interested and more engaged in the important public work that we do,” said Steve Pendery, Judge/Executive.

Campbell County Fiscal Court encourages interested residents and business owners to apply. Please submit an application by August 23, 2019 to be considered.

With seats in both Alexandria and Newport, Campbell County Fiscal Court is the local government for Kentucky’s eighth-largest county. Overseeing a budget of roughly $40M and a staff of 200+, the Fiscal Court works diligently every day to efficiently provide a range of services to residents and businesses led by Judge/Executive Steve Pendery serving since November 1998.
