Thursday, February 3, 2011 3:45 PM

ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - The public is invited to participate in the annual Alachua County Civic Education SerieS (ACCESS) classes, which begins April 4, 2011. Alachua County Government invites residents to learn about local government issues and gain access to County operations that most citizens never see. Each ACCESS graduating class will produce a group of citizens equipped to engage in ways that help Alachua County become more representative of its citizenry's needs.

County Manager Randall H. Reid said of ACCESS, "Thomas Jefferson believed an informed citizenry was democracy's greatest safeguard and we agree. Where do you go if you want to make a difference in your community ... ACCESS is the key."

ACCESS runs for seven sessions, and is free, but space is limited. The registration deadline is March 18.  For a complete schedule of classes, visit
