Local Government Academy

Key to the City

Applications are being accepted for the 2021 Key to the City Academy!  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 September 7, 2021 through November 16, 2021, with one special Saturday session on October 16, 2021, 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."
