Sarasota County government’s Civics 101 program still has a few seats open for the session that begins Sept. 8. Civics 101 is a 10-week session that gives residents an overview of operations and services of Sarasota County government. The classes, which give students a better understanding of the workings of county government, are held Thursday nights; some outdoor outings are also planned. The classes are free and are on a first-come, first served basis. Twenty-five people are selected for participation in the class, which is held in the fall and spring.
