The Town of Brownsburg’s Resident Academy proved to be so popular this spring that a second session will launch this fall.

Resident Academy is a six-session program that helps residents get a deeper understanding of the Town's operations through lecture, discussion, and interactive activities.

“If you’re a resident who has questions about how decisions are made from department head level up to Town Manager and Town Council, you’ll find this to be a worthwhile program,” said Town Manager Jeffery A. Eder.

“The people that work for this town are the unsung heroes,” Resident Academy graduate David Warswick shared on a survey. “To a person they have given all of us such an insight and education into our great town operations. I don’t hesitate to tell residents that if they have the opportunity to attend, please do this.”

The Academy will be held on Tuesday nights from 6-8 PM from August through October. Participants will tour Town facilities, learn day-to-day responsibilities and operations, gain a greater understanding of the budget process, meet Town leadership, and get answers to questions about the operations of the Town of Brownsburg.

Interested residents can apply online at Applications are accepted on a first come, first-served basis and preference will be given to those who have not previously participated. Class size is limited to 25 people. Registration is open until July 16; selected participants will be notified by July 23 of their acceptance into the program.
