Richland County residents can get a behind-the-scenes look at County operations during Richland 101, a free course that shows how tax dollars are used to provide services.
Beginning March 2, Richland 101 classes will be held 6 p.m.-8 p.m. every Monday and Thursday through April 2. The course concludes with a graduation ceremony April 6.
Classes take place at the Richland County Government Administration Building and other locations, including the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center, SONOCO Recycling Center and the County’s Jim Hamilton-L.B. Owens Airport.
Started in the 1990s, Richland 101 provides an opportunity for County residents to learn the basics of their local government. A range of topics will be covered this year, giving attendees insight into how tax dollars are used to provide services, such as animal care, magistrate court, emergency services and conservation. The course also will include a tour of several popular community attractions funded by tax dollars.
