Mayor Jeff Triplett, in a Resolution, formed the Mayor’s Youth Council on May, 20, 2015. The Youth Council is comprised of 12 students who live and attend high school in Sanford. All students are open to apply at both of Sanford’s high schools, Crooms Academy of Information Technology and Seminole High School. The 12 students, who comprise the Mayor’s Youth Council, were chosen by their schools to participate.
The goal of the Mayor’s Youth Council is to engage the youth of Sanford, to make recommendations to the City Commission on matters that affect this demographic and ultimately every citizen. The Council will pick projects/initiatives to work on that aligns with the City of Sanford’s Mission and Vision, involving them in the policy-making process.
