ATLANTA, GA—South Fulton City invites its citizens to join the city's citizens academy, called South Fulton U. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this free eight-week program will be held virtually.

This program aims to educate residents about how the city operates and give them opportunities to take part in the city to improve their quality of life.

“Residents of the City of South Fulton are the ultimate decision-makers when it comes to how our city is managed," said Mayor William Edwards.

"South Fulton U is one of the many ways we are connecting with them to provide insight into city operations and policies and build strong relationships that encourage them to be actively involved with their government,” he added.

South Fulton U classes will begin on Monday nights from 6 p.m until 7:30 p.m. Fall sessions will begin in mid-August, and winter sessions will be added in January if needed.

Classes of this program cover many aspects of the city government such as financial operations, budgeting, public safety, parks and recreation, public works initiatives, communication services, and economic development efforts.
