The City of Nacogdoches will be hosting Nac 101 in January 2016, as a unique opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of how this city works. Citizens enrolled in the program will learn about various City departments, volunteerism, the City Council, City Manager, the city budget as well as many other topics.
"If citizens are well informed about the process of governance in Nacogdoches and willing to get involved they become a part of the solution to the challenges our city faces," Mayor Roger Van Horn said.
Sessions will cover how to become more involved in the city government whether it is through volunteerism or becoming a member of one of the city boards such as the Planning and Zoning Commission or the Historic Landmark Preservation Committee. This program is also your chance as a citizen to get an all access pass behind the scenes of city government. You will get to hear presentations from hardworking city employees like Fire Chief Keith Kiplinger, Police Chief Jim Sevey, City Planner Larissa Philpot, City Librarian Mercedes Franks and many more from almost every city department.
The Nac 101 classes will be held every 2nd and 4th Thursday beginning at 5:30 pm
onJanuary 14th 2016
. Classes are free and they are open to all citizens over the age of 18. Each class will highlight different departments and will allow you to gain a more in depth understanding of how your city operates on a day-to-day basis. Understanding how your city operates not only makes you a better ambassador for Nacogdoches, it can also give you a peace of mind and reassurance that you are in good hands when it comes to city services.
