The Town of Ocean City is accepting applications for the fall semester of Ocean City University. Residents and visitors can learn more about the Town’s municipal government and the services it provides by attending a series of courses that offer citizens a diverse background on Ocean City. Classes are free and are offered in two semesters.
Classes are held on Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m., beginning September 12. The ten week course will cover a number of topics, including public works, public safety, tourism and finance.
“The goal of Ocean City University is to provide a better understanding of government’s role and relationship with citizens and continue to build the relationship between government and citizens to improve quality of life,” said David Recor, City Manager for the Town of Ocean City. “We hope this course gives citizens a sense of ownership in government actions because we believe informed citizens can make a difference in the community.”
A minimum of 15 students must be enrolled in the course. To sign up, visit www.oceancitymd.gov or call Diana Chavis at 410-289-8887.
