City of Montrose Youth Council
Now Accepting Applications

Montrose, CO — The City of Montrose is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Youth Council term. The deadline for applications is Thursday, September 24, at 4 p.m.

The Montrose Youth Council was established by the Montrose City Council to encourage greater youth participation in the city’s government. It is charged with actively advising City Council with thoughtful recommendations on issues concerning youth and assisting city staff in considering youth perspectives in its planning efforts. 

It also provides youth with opportunities to give back to their community in the form of community service projects.  

The Youth Council is composed of 11 high school students between the ages of 14 and 18 years who represent a cross-section of youth attending school and/or residing within the city’s boundaries. 

Members must have and maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or greater. The Montrose City Council will appoint members based on their application and an interview to be held at the regular City Council meeting on Tuesday, October 1. The council will then appoint members at their Tuesday, October 15 meeting. 

Members serve one-year terms and may reapply until they graduate from high school.  Scholarships of $250 per year served are available to those who meet minimum requirements.

The Youth Council Manual and application is now available for download at, or can be requested at City Hall, 433 S. 1st Street. Contact Mikayla Unruh, Youth Council coordinator at 970.240.1421 for more information.
