Junior Commissioner

Mt. Lebanon Seeks Junior Commissioner Applicants

Mt. Lebanon Municipality is seeking two qualified students who reside in Mt. Lebanon to serve as junior commissioners for the 2021-2022 school year.

Candidates must be rising juniors or seniors. Two students will be selected, one for each semester. The junior commissioner will attend public meetings each month and may attend advisory board meetings or shadow department heads.

The goal of the program is to promote public service by allowing young people to see how local government works first-hand. It also provides an opportunity for two-way communication between high school students and their local government. Junior commissioners report at Commission meetings on notable high school activities and issues. They also report to their high school student council on municipal matters.

Interested students must fill out an application that can be downloaded and submit it by July 9 to: Laura Pace Lilley, Mt. Lebanon Municipality, 710 Washington Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15228.

The Commission will interview the candidates and make the appointments prior to the start of the school year. For more information, students may contact Lilley at 412-343-3552, lpace@mtlebanon.org.
