Murfreesboro to host citizens academy

Posted: Updated:

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - A Middle Tennessee city plans to begin offering classes to its residents in an effort to educate them on the workings of local government.

Murfreesboro Vice Mayor Ron Washington told the Daily News Journal that he thinks it is important for citizens to understand how their government works and he thought offering an academy on the subject would be a great opportunity for residents and city leaders.

The City Council approved the measure this month, but the weekly classes won't start until early next year. The course is expected to run eight weeks and will cost $25 per participant. The city will incur other costs associated with the classes.
