Lexington Citizens' Academy

“It is a tribute to the town that so many dedicated municipal employees shared their expertise with citizens beyond the scope of normal business hours.  Speakers were enthusiastic, well prepared, and clearly dedicated to their respective departments and quality service.”-2013 Lexington Citizens’ Academy Participant
