Thank you for your interest in the Citizens Academy. Unfortunately, because class size is limited, we are no longer accepting applications for the current class. Future classes are anticipated and will be advertised when open for applications.
Have you ever wondered how Lombard's water is treated? How we maintain our streets? How we create maps of the Village? If you answered yes to these questions, then you should participate in this program!
The Academy, which is geared towards adults (you must be 18 or older to participate), will be held over consecutive weeks throughout April and May with sessions conducted on Monday evenings, 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm. The program includes interactive hands-on training activities, tours of Village facilities and presentations by Public Works staff. Participants will receive all necessary safety equipment, such as reflective vests and hardhats, and will have the opportunity to experience Public Works working conditions tailored to the program.
