So much of what goes into running a city is often behind-the-scenes and the responsibility for ensuring it runs smoothly lies with employees at all levels of the municipality. During City 101, participants hear straight from the different divisions on what it takes to provide a high level of service to citizens in our constantly changing mountain community.
Have you ever wondered what goes into ensuring our water is clean and safe before and after it comes out of the faucet? What factors go into maintaining more than 300 vehicles and heavy equipment of all shapes, sizes and dimensions? How do you protect vital information and safeguard technology constantly under siege from outside forces?
You’ll learn the answers to these questions along with many others during City 101. Bringing together city employees and community members, the leadership program delivers in-depth insights into city operations, straight from the individuals responsible for them, day-in and day-out. City 101 offers an opportunity to meet and network with like-minded individuals, gain valuable knowledge about how our community functions, and learn more about how you can make a difference.
“Now in its fifth year, City 101 has firmly established itself as a vital community resource for understanding city government and its programs and services,” commented Assistant to the City Manager and City 101 Program Director Winnie DelliQuadri. “After the sessions, we find citizens are more engaged and actively interacting with their city government; and that’s what the program is all about.”
The goal of City 101 is to:
- create a shared understanding of the city’s mission and purpose
- increase the understanding of the city and its operations
- enhance the ability to serve as ambassadors for the city
A mix of city staff along with community members will be selected to learn more about the city and its operations through field trips, forums, interactive activities and live demonstrations. Sessions take place on select Wednesdays between December and May, typically from 8:30am to 3:30pm with lunch provided.
Interested candidates must submit an application to the program and must commit to attending all sessions. Applications can be found at steamboatsprings.net/city101 and are due November 12, 2018.
