The Youth Committee is an advisory board to the City Council. Ten youths are appointed to serve one-or two-year terms. Members meet regularly to discuss issues in the community concerning local youth and teens. The opportunity is an experience for underage residents to participate in the democratic process, interact with City leaders and impact important City Hall decisions. Responsibilities include:
  • Attend monthly meetings and any additional assigned Commission or ad hoc meetings. The Committee may occasionally meet in summer;
  • Act in an advisory capacity to the City Council on matters pertaining to youth and teens;
  • Foster increased involvement in the affairs of municipal government;
  • Plan community programs and activities for youth; and
  • Review municipal matters as referred by the City Council or City Commissions, and make recommendations on such matters. 

Committee Meetings

Members meet regularly during the months of September thru June. Meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month in City Council Chambers (5938 Kauffman Ave.), or as otherwise stated on the posted agenda.
