Meeting Notes 2020


The Lewis County Youth Bureau Advisory Board was established and created by Resolution #30-1997, and adopted by the Lewis County Board of Legislators on February 5, 1997.

The Board is an “Advisory” Board rather than a “Policy Making” Board.  The board makes recommendations regarding the provision of services to youth in Lewis County.  The membership reflects a balance between government and non-government representatives who are directly concerned with the well-being of youth.  Representation on the board also consists of up to a maximum of 2 student representatives from each, public school district in the county.  Presently the board has 18 voting members and 4 Ex-Officio members.

Each year, the Office of Children and Family Services allocated funding to counties engaged in comprehensive planning for youth services/programs (the allocation is based on the youth population of the county according to the current census.  The execution of the plan, qualifies our county for state reimbursement in accordance with NYS OCFS allocation of funds, appropriated for counties engaged in comprehensive planning for youth services/programs.
