The first meeting of the Mayor’s Youth Council takes place Friday morning at Knoxville High School. City Councilor Tim Pitt says the group gives high school students a chance to get involved in the community and find out more about government. He says last year, the youth council took a trip to the state capital and met with local legislators and the governor. They also had lunch with Congressman Dave Loebsack and his staff. The group meets at 7:30 Friday morning at Knoxville High School. You can find out more by contacting Tim Pitt on Facebook or calling him at 641-204-9263.
