The mayor’s office for the City of New Martinsville is currently accepting applications for the newly created City Youth Council. The youth council will serve alongside the common council of the City of New Martinsville and consist of at least six members. Applications will be accepted from students who are in grades 9 through 12, who attend Magnolia High School, or who are home-schooled and live within the city of New Martinsville.
Youth Council members will take the oath of office as advisory to the common council and will be expected to attend committee meetings and regular council meetings. The Youth Council provides an opportunity for leadership development and an understanding of how local government operates. It also allows for our youth to voice their opinion and share their vision for the development of our community.
Applications are available at City Hall or on the city’s website newmartinsville.com under the City Hall tab. Applications are due in by Friday, February 11, 2022.
