Provo City Council members will answer attendees’ questions and listen to their concerns at a policy discussion lunch at BYU at 12 p.m. on Monday, March 20. Community members, students and faculty members are invited to attend and bring their own lunches.
“This policy lunch was planned to help students get to know City Council members so we can find out what issues are important to them,” City Council member Kim Santiago said. “This is an opportunity for students to speak to council members directly about anything that is on their minds.”
Santiago said she has been working with BYU student and intern Collyn Mosquito to increase student civic engagement. Santiago said BYU students should get involved in their local government because the local government’s decisions affect students in matters of parking, housing location and density, biker and pedestrian safety, road conditions and city services.
Santiago serves on the Provo City Council and represents District 2, including the Joaquin and North Park neighborhoods.
All seven council members will attend the lunch.
