During the last Town of Aurora Council Meeting on March 18, 2014 a group of young adults came forward to Open Forum in the council chambers with the intent to establish an Aurora Youth Advisory Committee. Town staff is going to investigate further, however it was clearly stated that staff is going to listen to these young adults first. Almost all Councillors and Mayor were in favor of the proposed youth committee.
