Local Government Academy

Local Government Academy

Key to the City

The City of Livermore is accepting applications for the 2018 "Key to the City" local government academy. This unique behind-the-scenes look at municipal operations is a free program.

Sessions are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-9:00 pm from March 6, 2018 through May 15, 2018 (with one special Saturday session), and will be held at various City facilities.


About the Program

You'll meet the Mayor and City staff, participate in a mock City Council meeting, venture on a "Discover Livermore" bus tour, and explore municipal facilities such as the fire training tower, water reclamation plant, and new airport administration building.

Feedback from past participants has been overwhelmingly positive, including comments such as, "...Time spent very wisely;" and, "...You'll never view government in quite the same way."


Application Information

Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk's Office by 5:00 pm on Friday, January 26, 2018.  You may download the application here:  Key to the City Application.
