After attending four sessions of the Homer Citizens Academy my initial impression is that it’s been a wonderful idea.
The department heads have been very cooperative and informative in their presentations, reducing much of the confusion surrounding city administration and functions. I believe that for those of us attending, including council member Barbara Howard, the academy will be an enlightening experience. It’s mystifying, though, why more commissioners, council members or members of the public haven’t taken advantage of this opportunity. Several sessions remain and, I suspect, a seat is available for you.
