The Garland City Council wants to hear from the city’s youth and invites young people to apply to serve on the Garland Youth Council. The Youth Council’s mission is to provide a forum which educates Garland’s youth to the various workings of City business and allows youth to voice ideas and concerns.
Garland residents who will be grades 9-12 during the 2013-14 school year are eligible to apply. Each applicant should submit a completed GYC application and two letters of reference by May 24, 2013 to Dorothy White, Public & Media Affairs Director, 200 N Fifth Street, Garland, TX 75040.
Applicants should plan to attend at least one Youth Council meeting. Regular meetings are set for the second Tuesday of each month, with committee meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month. The GYC meets at Granger Recreation Center, 1310 W. Avenue F. The Mayor and each of Garland’s eight City Council members will select two applicants to serve a one-year term.
Applications and meeting agendas are available at Garland City Hall, 200 N. Fifth Street, in the Public & Media Affairs office and on the Youth Council's web page. For additional information, contact Dorothy White at 972-205-2879 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
