The Powell River Youth Council has been formed and is up and running.
The council appeared as a delegation before city council this past week.
Mayor Dave Formosa says it’s a great opportunity to engage with youth in the community and for youth to bring forward ideas and concerns. He notes members will use the format that city council uses for their meetings.
Members will also debate issues and make recommendations that will be brought to city council.
Formosa notes the previous youth council worked on the skateboarding and bike park and worked on rules around skateboarding in the city.
