The 2013-2014 Year in Review:


MYAC Hosts Community Forum

MYAC members organized a forum April 2 to give residents a chance to learn what would be on the Ballot April 8. Candidates for Board of Election and Board of Aldermen answered audience and student questions, and Mayor Sanger answered questions about the ballot initiatives on economic development, emergency sevices, street repair and the Shaw Park Ice Rink. 

Fire Station tour

Clayton MYAC got a behind-the-scenes look at the city fire station and the hard-working emergency personnel. 

Police Station Tour

Following a fascinating discussion in the municipal courtroom with Municipal Judge Peter J. Krane and Prosecuting Attorney Darold Crotzer, MYAC members were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of Clayton's new police station led by Chief of Police Thomas Byrne.

MYAC rides in Clayton Homecoming parade

Mayor Sanger and MYAC members Noah Engel and Alex Walker threw candy to residents during the 2013 homecoming parade. Also on the truck were Aldermen Joanne Boulton (Ward 1), Michelle Harris (Ward 2) and Alex Berger III (Ward 3). 

Kickoff Sept. 11: A Behind-the-scenes View of Clayton

City Manager Craig Owens gave MYAC members a glimpse into the inner workings of Clayton as the group kicked off its 2012-2013 year Sept. 11. Who knew there are a 100 lane miles of road in Clayton? Or 7 million+ square feet of office space? Members learned who takes care of roads and parks, and how services are allocated and paid for. After the meeting, MYAC members were introduced to the community at the joint Board of Aldermen/Board of Education meeting.
