Arlington Heights is seeking village high school students, especially those attending Rolling Meadows and Prospect high schools, to serve on the village's Youth Commission.

The commission, which provides recommendations to the village board on matters relevant to young people, needs representatives from those two high schools in particular, said James McCalister, director of the Health Services Department.

The Youth Commission consists of 13 appointed members, six adults and seven youths. Members include a staff member from Northwest Suburban High School District 214 or Arlington Heights Elementary District 25, an Arlington Heights Park District representative, and a representative of the police department.

The village also seeks a volunteer with a hearing impairment to serve on the Commission for Citizens with Disabilities.

Village President Arlene Mulder asks anyone willing to serve on one of the village's 19 boards and commissions to send her a letter and a resume. Mulder finds it helpful if the letters mention interest in a specific commission, and she keeps the resumes for future reference when vacancies occur.

Some of the boards and commissions have specific requirements for membership.

Village hall is at 33 S. Arlington Heights Road, 60005. Mulder's office is (847) 368-5105.
