This is the fifth year for the Academy which begins on Aug. 26. Applications or interest forms for the program are available at Town Hall, APS or can be downloaded from the Town's Web site, www.ci.payson.
The program is designed to groom future leaders and educate the participants about the inner workings of local government.
The program consists of an orientation, seven classroom sessions with presentations by Town departments, a tour of Town facilities and a closing/graduation ceremony.
Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8:30.
The program is available to any Payson resident, at least 18 years of age or a high school senior. The program is free.
Due to space limitations, class size is limited to 25 people. The deadline for submitting applications is July 31, 2008. For more information, call Debbie Dawson at 474-5242, ext. 372.
