The Mayors Youth Council presented their project on North Park improvements to the board. Their mission is to get the youth’s voice heard in the community this project is important as it helps to fix up a recreational gathering place in the community. The project would consist of resurfacing the basketball court, new backboards, rims, and nets, benches/seating around courts, and landscaping. They are looking for donations currently and have a matching grant that these donations will be matched to. There are several different donation levels in which individuals, businesses, and organizations can become sponsors of the project with different “perks” for each level of donation. Their goal is to create a safe place to play and relax while supporting and benefiting not only our community, but visitors as well. They are requesting $5,000 from the board to be put toward their matching grant. The board was very impressed with their presentation and approved the request.

The board approved for candidates 1 and 2 to receive conditional offers of employment.

The board approved the claims.
