About Citizens Academy

You will learn how local government in Lexington operates through a series of presentations and Q/A sessions from the Town's professional staff. 

You'll also discover new opportunities for civic engagement. A number of previous participants have gone on to serve on Town boards and committees.

Have you ever wondered…?
  • What the Police do with evidence?
  • What gets carried on a fire truck?
  • How we decide what roads to pave?
  • How the Town sets the Fiscal Year budget?

You'll learn all of this, and more!
