Local Government Academy

Local Government Academy

Key to the City

This unique behind-the-scenes look at municipal operations is a free program open to people who live or work in Livermore.

Sessions are held Tuesday evenings from 6:00-9:00 pm, from March 24, 2020 through June 2, 2020, with one special Saturday session on April 25, 2020, 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."
