Registration is now open for the Town of Brownsburg’s Resident Academy, a six-session program designed to help residents gain a greater 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 Academy will be held on Tuesday nights from 6-8 PM from January through March. Participants will tour Town facilities, learn day-to-day responsibilities and operations, get 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.
