RECOMMENDATION
Direct Parks and Recreation Staff to work with the Brentwood Lions Club on the Youth in Government Day Program for March of 2008.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
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 awards banquet.

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.

FISCAL IMPACT
City would provide lunch and transportation for a tour of City facilities not to exceed $2,500 from the 2007/08 budget.
