Civic Superhero Training

You care about what happens in your city. You're an engaged citizen, but it's time to put your cape on and become something bigger-- a Civic Superhero!

Civic Superheros know how to:
  • get potholes filled, 
  • receive notifications when City Council is going to discuss an issue they care about
  • Visualize and track the City's revenue and expenses
