What fun to have children of Department of Permitting Services staff members join us for Take Your Child to Work Day. Our guests learned about the Council’s work, the public process and the importance of getting involved in local issues. Then they convened a Kid Council to decide on a bill requiring children to wear helmets while bicycling. After hearing testimony from witnesses, the Kid Council rejected the bill in a close vote. FYI, the adult Council decided this bill several years ago and determined that children do need to wear helmets. We look forward to seeing these young people again when they return as engaged citizens or elected officials.
