COVID-19 UPDATE (August 11, 2021)
Mayor’s Youth Council Continues to Pause for FY21-22 School Year

City officials announced today that the Mayor’s Youth Council program (MYCity) is unable to resume while community spread of coronavirus remains classified as high.  However, local young people are encouraged to continue sharing their ideas and feedback with city elected officials, departments, and divisions.  

Since 2015, 83 students have been selected to participate in the MYCity program.  The targeted initiative has successfully served as a means to solicit youth input and foster authentic engagement.  For additional information or questions, please contact the Mayor’s Office at (270) 890-0200.


Initiated by Hopkinsville Mayor Carter M. Hendricks in the fall of 2015, the Mayor’s Youth Council is a student advisory group known as MYCity. High school students from Christian County public, private, and home schools are invited to serve on the Council or get involved with Council-led projects. Through the group, the city aims to provide a voice for area teens, and afford them the opportunity to address issues that affect our community. While providing a platform to enhance leadership and civic skills.
