Bozeman, Montana looks for younger perspective, creates advisory council
Bozeman has created a new group to engage young people in city policy.
The Young Professionals Advisory Council includes 25 young adults who represent a wide variety of industries, from First Interstate Bank to Dry Hills Distillery. Deputy Mayor Chris Mehl suggested forming the group because he saw a need for younger viewpoints in city government.
The average age of Bozeman residents is 27, and about 17,000 students attend Montana State University. Council members are going to examine issues that will affect the next generation like the rising cost of living. They are meant to advocate for their peers who don’t have time to engage in city politics.
