From the city of Frisco:
(August 16, 2012) Get answers to the questions you have about your local government and discover things you never knew about the place you call home through City Hall 101. The free program is a great way for residents to boost their knowledge about what happens behind the scenes at City Hall and other municipal facilities. The next City Hall 101 class runs from September 10 through December 10, 2012.
During the 14-week program, which meets on Monday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., hear from Mayor Maher Maso, city managers, directors and key city staff. Find out what it takes to build roads and parks and to plan for Frisco’s future growth. See the equipment first responders from the Frisco Fire Department and Frisco Police Department use to protect and save lives. Frisco ISD leaders will host one of the classes and show you the latest technology used by the school district and how they manage meeting the needs of a growing student population. Participants are also encouraged to attend the Town Hall Meeting happening October 15.
The initial session on September 10 will be held at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.; however, the locations of Monday night sessions will change to various city facilities to correspond with the department/program being discussed.
City Hall 101 is open to Frisco residents 18 and older. Class size is limited. Registration is easy and available online at FriscoTexas.gov/CH101. The schedule for class topics and locations is also posted on the web page. For more information email CityHall101@friscotexas.gov or contact Ben Brezina at 972-292-5103.
