Piqua Government Academy

Demonstration of an energy bikeThe Piqua Government Academy welcomes all Piqua residents to come to learn about what the city does, why the city does it, and how the city does it. With how successful this program has been in the past, the academy has been recognized by the Ohio City/County Management Association as one of the best programs for Citizen Engagement! This is an excellent way to educate residents, build positive relationships and increase communication between our local government and our Piqua community. We hope by learning more about our local government it will encourage others to be future leaders.
