"Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who does nothing because he could do only a little."

Edmund Burke, British statesman

          I am writing these words as an invitation to “do a little” for the City of Jasper in 2018.  This is your invitation to participate in our second annual Jasper Citizens Academy.

The Jasper Citizens Academy will deliver information about how your local government operates.  You’ll meet elected officials and every department leader.  Plus, you’ll visit City Hall and all other city departments.

Participants in the Jasper Citizens Academy will attend classes at City Hall, Jasper Arts Center, Jasper Wastewater Facility, Jasper Gas & Water Treatment Facility, Habig Center, Jasper Street Department, Jasper Police Department and Jasper Volunteer Fire Department Kiefer Fire Station. You’ll see equipment operate and have a chance to ask questions.

Classes will be held the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, February 6 - May 15, 2018 from 6:30PM – 8:30PM.  To enroll, email Lisa Bower at lbower@jasperindiana.gov or call at 812.482.4255.  A minimum of 10 participants will be required with a maximum of 15 in the class.  “Do a little” in 2018!
