At the council meeting, the Youth Council provided a summary of what they accomplished this year (City Hall Internships, Zero Waste Station at Farmers Market, Halloween face painting and education table, storm debris/Christmas tree recycling event where they collected money for the Police Department) and mentioned a few upcoming programs (Green Fair, Food Lifeline Day of Service).

Youth Council President Sophie Knudson, Vice President Margo Coxon, Youth Council member Teagan Wood, and Youth Council Adult Advisor Paul Sundberg presented Chief Sutton with a check for the funds they raised from the community recycling event on January 11 with Republic Services (formerly Allied Waste).

The Safe Harbor Fund provides emergency funds for victims of domestic violence.
