The City of Kennewick is now accepting applications for our Mini Citizen’s Academy. The Mini Citizen’s Academy is a free two-night program designed to provide community members with a better understanding of the workings of their local government through interactive presentations by multiple departments. The academy covers a wide range of topics, including how the annual budget is developed, how public safety resources are deployed and Council priorities.
