Nov 17, 2017

Mayor Walters has announced that he is now accepting applications for the 2018 Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council. He is seeking eight (8) energetic, engaged students who reside in the City of Cuyahoga Falls and are in grades 9 through 12. Applications may be obtained from the Mayor’s office at City Hall, by calling (330) 971-8200 or by visiting http://www.cityofcf.com/activity/mayors-youth-advisory-council.

The Cuyahoga Falls Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council is a unique collaboration between the Mayor’s Office and our future leaders of Cuyahoga Falls. The purpose of the program is to encourage students to become active participants in their local government and community by working with city leaders to address issues that directly affect young people in the city. The panel will sit with the Mayor and various city departments to have open discussions about what matters most to them, how they would like to see the city move forward, and what role they can play to effect change. The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council will be involved with City Council meetings to gain personal insight on how local government works.

The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council meetings will be held on the first and third Mondays of each month. The program will begin on Monday, February 5, 2018, from 5:15 - 6:15 p.m., prior to City Council meetings. The meetings are held in the Natatorium Meeting Room. The group will serve for approximately 4 months.

Applications and parental consent forms are due to the Mayor’s Office, 2310 Second Street, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44221, by 4:00 p.m. on December 29, 2017.
