Gilbert seeks members for advisory task force to tackle teen violence

As Gilbert continues to grapple with teen violence, the town is seeking members of the public to serve on an advisory task force. The 11-member group will be a mix of adults and teens, including at least four current high school students.

Town Councilmember Kathy Tilque said the council will review applications and help choose finalists, who will then be interviewed.

“The council needs to review all of the resumes, the application and the videos that are part of that process and rank all of those applicants," she said.

Applications must be submitted by May 6. More information about the task force can be found on the town’s website  gilbertaz.gov/home.
