CityWorks Academy is an inside look at Austin government – a unique opportunity for Austinites to learn about the City’s governmental processes, its procedures and the people who deliver these services.
Have you ever wondered:
How much a fire hose weighs?
How many visitors come to Austin for conventions every year?
How many City vehicles operate on alternative fuel or hybrid technology?
How long Barton Springs has been an Austin swimming hole?
The CityWorks Academy will answer these questions and many more while informing you about the business of local government.
