Most of the LC101 Class of 2012
Larimer County’s application process is underway for the fourth annual Larimer County 101: A Journey Through Larimer County Services (LC101), a 9-week class introducing participants to County services and the people who provide them. The sessions meet on Thursday evenings April 4-May 30, 2013, from 6-9pm in and around Fort Collins.
Applications are available online at http://larimer.org/news/larimer101.htm
and the deadline to apply is Monday, March 4, 2013.
Information about the previous classes is also available at this web site link.
The class is free and limited to 35 participants. Those who can meet on all class dates will be given 1st priority. Larimer County will strive to choose participants based on a wide geographic scope representing all of Larimer County.
Session leaders strive to make 101 classes as interactive as possible and are held in several County facilities in and around Fort Collins. The concept was designed to provide participants with an inside look at the workings of Larimer County government and the services provided. Participants will be asked to role play County Planning scenarios, brain-storm Public Works resource issues, make decisions on challenging Human Service issues, and more. Participants will interact with each other, elected officials, and staff.
Topics covered include: the County’s budget; elections; how land use decisions are made; navigating the criminal justice system; building roads and bridges; understanding Human Services and public health; jobs and the Workforce Center; Larimer County’s history; the Virtual Courthouse, our web site; how property taxes are assessed; how the Coroner’s Office operates; a look at the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office and more.
