Get Involved In Your Local Government Today!!!

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to keep a City running smoothly on a daily basis? Decisions are made, projects are overseen, citizen concerns are addressed, and much more is a typical day for City staff. We’d like you to get involved in this process. For this reason, the City of La Porte has put together a program called City University. It’s a unique opportunity for our citizens to get hands-on interaction with key City staff, a closer look at services offered, and see what it takes to run a City of approximately 35,000 people. Your participation will include: hands-on activities, department presentations, facility tours, free light dinner, and much more!

City University will be held on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm - 9:00pm (end times vary), from September 3rd to November 5th, at various facilities throughout the City of La Porte. The class is FREE to attend and a short graduation ceremony will be held at the City Council Meeting on Monday, November 9th, to conclude the program. The deadline to sign up is Friday, August 28th, or until the program is full (15 participants max). Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn more about the inner workings of your City. We want our citizens to have input on the direction we are taking as a City, and this program will give you a direct line of communication with both your elected leaders and City staff. Hope to see you soon!
