Mayor’s Youth Cabinet to Focus on Public Works

Bristol Public Works vehicle

The Mayor’s Youth Cabinet next meeting will focus on the day to day operations of the DPW’s Streets Division on Tuesday, November 13, 2018.

Youth Members should meet no later than 5:40pm at City Hall in the First Floor Meeting Room (outside Council Chambers). During the presentation, the Youth
Cabinet will engage in discussions surrounding snow operations-including how City officials decide whether there will be school, regular maintenance,
curbing projects and catch basins—all part of the Streets Division of the Public Works Department.

Bristol young people, ages 10-18, are invited to be part of the Mayor’s Youth Cabinet. The purpose is to connect young people with their government and also allow them to have input on issues that affect them. The meetings are held each month before the City Council Meeting.

There are different topics each month, and some guest speakers.

The meetings are 45 minutes in length, and members can opt to stay for a part of the City Council meeting which begins at 7pm. This is not a series. Young people are free to
attend any or all as their schedules allow.

Participants will be asked to have parent/guardians sign waivers clearing them to be part of the television production.

To RSVP contact the Mayor’s Office at 860-584-6520
