Our City receives requests from local elementary schools to visit City Hall for educational City tours. During the City tour the students meet the Mayor and get to hear about what he does for the City, how many Councilmen/Councilwoman are make up our City Council and who the Councilmen/Councilwoman represent. The students learn about what an ordinance is and some of the most recent ordinances that have been passed in the City of Green River. The kids were excited to visit the Police Department and hear about how they keep our City safe. They all were able to see the inside of the police car, lights and sirens. Some of the classes were also able to meet the police dog too. On the tour of City Hall, they were greeted by our Chief of the Fire Department, and were able to see Fire Station #1, located at City Hall. While at the station, they learned about fire safety and how our Fire Department protect the citizens of Green River. Some of the elementary classes had the pleasure of meeting with our Community Development Department and assist with planning out what the City of Green River looks like through an interactive building session. The kids came up with great questions and showed they would be very good Junior Planners.
