Learn why Delaware is the great City it is and meet your local government in person at our City of Delaware Citizens’ Academy. Go behind the scenes at Delaware’s Police Department, Fire Department and water and sewer plant. Learn the structure of city government at City Hall and more. You already live in one of Ohio’s best hometowns; now you can learn how it works, and make it even better! The class begins in February and is limited to 20. Registrations are taken on a first-come basis. Don’t be shut out!
The next Citizens Academy will form in January 2019. Watch this page for more information.
