The La Pine City Council will discuss adding a new “member" to the Council in the next few weeks.

 

Mayor Ken Mulenex says they have been discussing the possibility of having a student from the high school be a non-voting member of the Council.  "We have a motto down here 'We Support Our Youth,' and I wanted to put teeth into that. And if we're gong to say that, let's do something. And by supporting our youth, by getting them involved in city government, in a way that they could participate and learn at the same time, that would be supporting them. And that would valuable to them down the road."

 

Mulenex says there is a La Pine student currently on their student council who has expressed an interest in joining the City Council.

 

He says all of the council is enthusiastic about the idea and they will discuss the idea again Wednesday and possibly draft a resolution to have the student in place by mid-February.
