The Minneapolis City Academy program, which begins Sept. 18, is a chance for people to learn about all these things and more. Registration is limited, so to join the Academy register online, or call 612-673-3163.

The City Academy will give residents a behind the scenes look at how Minneapolis City government functions and give them a unique opportunity to meet with and ask questions of City staff and leaders. City Academy sessions will be held weekly from Sept. 18 through Oct. 16 at locations throughout Minneapolis.
