GO BACK TO CLASS TO LEARN MORE ABOUT FRISCO’S CITY GOVERNMENT; REGISTRATION HAPPENING NOW FOR FREE ‘CITY HALL 101’ PROGRAM

 

Learning is a lifelong process, and the City of Frisco offers a great way to boost your knowledge about what happens inside City Hall and other municipal facilities. City Hall 101 is a free program designed to give an insider’s view of the way your city government operates. The next City Hall 101 class runs from February 2 through April 27, 2009.

 

Meet Mayor Maher Maso, city council members and city managers. Go behind the scenes of the Frisco Fire and Police Departments.  Hear what it takes to build roads and plan for Frisco’s future. These and many more topics are covered during the 11 week program which runs on Monday evenings from

6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

 

The initial “kick off” session on February 2 will be held at the George A.

Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.; however, the locations of Monday night sessions will change to correspond with the department being discussed.

 

City Hall 101 is open to citizens 18 and older. Class size is limited to

25 participants. Registration forms are available for download on the city’s Web site, FriscoTexas.gov. From the home page click on the ‘Project/Programs’ tab and then select ‘City Hall 101’ from the drop-down menu.

 

The schedule for class topics and locations is also listed online.  For more information, contact Amy Gill at 972-292-5103, or agill@friscotexas.gov.
