City University

Get Involved In Your Local Government Today!

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to keep a City running smoothly on a daily basis? The decisions that have to be made, the projects that have to be overseen, the citizen concerns that need to be addressed, all of this and more make up any given day for City staff. A process that we WANT you to be involved in. For this reason, the City of La Porte has put together a new program called City U. It’s a unique opportunity for our citizens to get a hands on interaction with key members of City Staff, a closer look at the services that we as a City provide, and what it takes to run a City of approx 35,000. You will be participating in hands on activities, touring facilities, get a free dinner, and much more.  

Example of class schedules:

1)      Administration & Finance (i.e. City Management, City Secretary and Council)
2)      Municipal Court & EOC
3)      PD
4)      Fire & EMS
5)      Parks and Recreation
6)      Planning
7)      Public Works
8)      Tour of the City Facilities followed by graduation dinner
9)      Recognition of graduation City University Class at a council meeting
