The Nome City Council meeting begins tonight with the swearing in of it’s first-ever youth representative. Nome-Beltz Principal Jay Thomas nominated Molly Kenick to serve as the council youth representative.
The city ordinance requires the youth representative to be elected by Nome-Beltz students, however, as the school year was already underway when the ordinance passed, the City Council will include a youth appointed to that position.
During last week’s re-scheduled regular meeting, the council did hear a first reading on some new proposed ordinances but they will not be discussing them tonight. The only action item on the agenda is a resolution approving a new labor agreement between Nome Joint Utilities System and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
Tonight’s meeting will begin at 7pm at the Council Chambers in Nome City Hall.
