Mayor Ament will personally greet your tour group in the City Hall Council Chambers. Depending upon the day, the mayor may lead your group throughout City Hall, stopping in each department for a brief explanation of each department's function.
The group is assembled back in the Council Chambers, where the mayor may conduct a mock council meeting. The group will enjoy a fun learning experience as different members are selected to be the mayor, aldermen, and city clerk. The group may also sit in the council seats to discuss a current city issue, hear from citizens (the rest of the group), and finally vote on the issue.
All tour group members will leave City Hall with a souvenir to remember their trip through the process of city government.
Reasons for Tours
City Hall tours are great for scout groups working on a city government badge and school groups studying city government for their American history unit. Of course, any type of group is welcome.
The entire tour lasts approximately one hour, but we will certainly abide by your time constraints. After the tour, have your group stop just down the road at Malone Park (weather permitting) to enjoy a bag lunch brought from home.
