Local government touches the lives of all residents.
From public safety, recreation programs and road maintenance to water service, senior programs, building codes and more, county government performs a vital role in the well-being of our community.
Now residents can get an in-depth look at how county government works through the Calvert County Government Citizens Academy. This free program features site visits and discussions with county staff that will give a unique insight into the daily work that goes into local government.
The nine-week academy meets every Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. Participants who complete the program have an opportunity to receive continuing education units through the College of Southern Maryland.
The 2020 Calvert County Citizen’s Academy has been postponed to January 2021.
Calvert County Government is currently transitioning several senior management positions due to retirements. In order to provide program participants the best experience possible and to allow our new directors an opportunity to focus on their new positions and teams, the next Citizen’s Academy class will be in January 2021.
