The Pasco County Citizens’ Academy recently announced the latest group of graduates from its program.
The academy helps to educate citizens about the county’s governmental operations, according to a Pasco County news release.
It includes sessions hosted by elected officials, department directors and other county staff aimed at providing a deeper look at government functions and services.
