Local Government Academy

Have you ever wanted to know how a city makes sure trash gets collected, water comes out of the faucets, roads get paved, trees are planted, a library is filled with resources and toilets flush?

The Oakland Park Local Government Academy presents an in-depth opportunity to learn how each department and the City Commission work together to help make Oakland Park a better place to live, work and play.

​ Past graduates of the Local Government Academy include all five current City Commissioners, as well as several past mayors.

​“Our goal is to provide a ‘hands on’ orientation as to how the City of Oakland Park delivers each of its core services every hour of every day,” says Parks and Leisure Services Director Heidi Burnett.

​ To learn more, please call Heidi Burnett at 954-630-4510.
