The city invites interested La Cañada Flintridge residents between the ages of 14 and 19 to submit applications for service on the City Youth Council. Three vacancies will occur during the month of May.
The Youth Council discusses issues facing the youth of the community. This Council provides a forum to expose youth to city government. Members of the Youth Council propose, develop and recommend policies and programs to further the interests and engagement of young people in the City. The Council makes policy recommendations to the LCF City Council that improve youth involvement with the community.
The Youth Council consists of nine members. Five “at-large” members are appointed by City Council to serve two-year terms. Four “school representative” members are appointed by the four high schools in the City, with one member from each school. The schools are Flintridge Preparatory School, La Cañada High School, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and St. Francis High School. These members serve one-year terms.
Two of the openings are for new two-year terms while one appointment will fill a vacancy for a term in office expiring in May 2016.
The Youth Council meets regularly at 3:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month in the city council chambers. Additional meetings may be held as required.
Residents interested in serving on this commission may obtain an application from the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, 1327 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge or online at www.lcf.ca.gov. The deadline for filing applications is Monday, June 22 at 5 p.m. It is anticipated that the LCF City Council will conduct brief interviews of applicants and will make appointments at their regular meeting to be held on Aug. 17.
