Snohomish Youth Council seeks to add composting at schools

SNOHOMISH — The Snohomish Youth Council, a group of select teens tasked with advising City Hall, is working to have food composting bins at Snohomish High School and possibly Glacier Peak High School, a youth council representative reported in late May. The group also held a register-to-vote event last fall that got 50 registrants, they said.

Mayor Linda Redmon also introduced the 2024-2025 Youth Council of incoming seniors Kole Dickson, Eva Martynyuk and Luna Waller; incoming juniors Eli Blaylock, Taylor Plant and Poppy Stilwell and incoming sophomores Embry Ciaravella, Heaven Girma, Joyce Lee and Salem Stamatiou.

The city's youth board was restarted about seven years ago as an initiative of then-Councilwoman Redmon’s and Councilman Jason Sanders.
