Youth City Council

Mayor & City Council

The Youth City Council is made up of young men and women from Spanish Fork schools in 9 to 12 grade.  A mayor and council are elected every June and have committees that help in service projects each month. The Youth Council meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month at the City Office in the Council Room and then has a monthly service activity. Being on the Youth Council is a great chance to serve the community, meet youth from all over Spanish Fork, learn how city government works, and meet local and state officials.

ALL PARTICIPANTS (including Board Members) must submit the Youth City Council Application and Media Release forms. The Media Release form must be completed by a parent or guardian.
