Citizens Academy Graduates Recognized by Council

Mayor Mann and the Sanford City Council recognized the ninth graduating class of Sanford Citizens' Academy during its regular meeting on Tuesday, October 15. 

Graduates spent the past 12 weeks learning the ins and outs of city government, including a crash course on municipal oversight, field trips to the water and wastewater treatment plants, and a sneak peek at the Raleigh Exec Jetport's new terminal building.

"The ultimate goal for this program is for residents to be more engaged in and knowledgeable about the decision making process," says Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem Rebecca Wyhof Salmon who spearheaded the initiative with Mayor Mann.

Since 2014, nearly 100 people have graduated the program. This year's graduates are Melissa Caddick, Christina Cline, Rosalinda Cruz, Christine Hilliard, Val Marcy, Emily Mierisch, Stephanie Phillips, Allison Sills, Brad Simpson, Jennifer Soper, Tomitha Zimmerman, and Lynne Ziobro.

Mayor Chet Mann, Sanford City Council, City of Sanford staff, elected officials, and community leaders gathered at Kiwanis Family Park on Friday to dedicate the park's new amenities, which were funded in part by the 2013 Bond Referendum and a PARTF grant.

The new amenities are a splash pad, inclusive playground, paved walking trail, new bathroom facilities, and two new shelters. The City also expanded the parking lot.
