City of Saginaw MI -
City of Saginaw Student Government Day
The City of Saginaw’s Student Government Day is on Monday, April 10, 2017. The City Council meeting is scheduled to start at noon at City Hall. Student Government Day allows high school students an opportunity to learn about local governmental operations by spending the day with elected officials and City staff. This annual event is co-sponsored by the American Legion Post No. 22.
Students will begin the day meeting with Mayor, Dennis Browning and city staff for a welcome, introductions, and overview of day to day operations. The students will then participate in a “mock” City Council meeting. After this enactment, the students will take a tour of the Police Department where they will see the shooting range, and other equipment utilized by officers. The students will then be transported to the Central Fire Station for a tour. Fire Chief VanLoo and fire fighters will show the students the equipment they use, and they will have an opportunity to see the turn out gear worn and required for a fire fighter to perform their job.
Following the tours and presentations, students will take their lunch at the American Legion, Post No. 22, located at 2200 S. Niagara Street. During lunch, elected officials and city staff will have an opportunity to discuss with students other important aspects of local government operations. After lunch the Police K-9 Units will be present to give demonstrations on how the K-9 dogs work with their handlers. The City of Saginaw K-9 units are trained in tracking and narcotics. Students will attend the City Council meeting which begins at 12:00 noon in the Council Chambers.
Public Information Officer, Debbie Powell, commented “For many years Saginaw has partnered with local high schools, inviting students to attend a city council meeting and find out more about what the elected officials and staff do to run the city. We are able to make a personal connection with the students and hopefully encourage them to be involved in their community, and perhaps even consider a public service career. The students’ day will be filled with a lot of activity, time spent with the mayor, councilmembers, and city staff. Students will be transported to the various city facilities via a STARS bus. Their day will conclude with attending the April 10 city council meeting which will be held at noon at city hall, and is open to the public.”
