Direct Parks and Recreation Staff to work with the Brentwood Lions Club on
the Youth in Government Day Program for March of 2008.
Parks and Recreation Staff were approached by the Brentwood Lions Club on
April 5, 2007 outlining a Youth in Government Program for 2008. This program
is designed to involve the youth of our community with City Government. This
program would require the participation of the City of Brentwood Council and
Management Staff as well as Liberty and Heritage High Schools. Students
would have counterparts of City Council and City Staff for one day in which
a tour of City facilities would be provided, shadowing of counterparts
during the day, a luncheon and it would culminate with a Council Meeting
whose students would shadow their counterparts. Additionally, later that
week, the students would conduct a Mock City Council meeting and dinner
Staff is seeking the recommendation from City Council to work with the Lions
Club in implementing the Youth in Government Day program in March of 2008.
City would provide lunch and transportation for a tour of City facilities
not to exceed $2,500 from the 2007/08 budget.
