Executive Summary
The Board approved creation of a program designed to involve and inform citizens about the services provided by their local government. Today we will be recognizing those participants who attended at least six of the eight sessions. This is the 16th graduating class.

Background
The ACCESS program was designed and implemented by a team of Board of County Commissioner employees and representatives from the Constitutional Officers, Judicial Officers, Library District, and Health Department. The first class was held in the spring of 2003. This program was designed to provide community members a behind the scenes look at what their county government does and show them how their tax dollars are being spent. Participants tour a number of county facilities including the County Jail, Animal Services, and the Combined Communication Center. They also attend a number of interactive sessions that detail the services provided to them by the County. To date, there have been 16 classes.
