West Valley City offers tours of City Hall combined with educational presentations to elementary school students, scout groups, and interested resident groups. The tour includes the various public spaces of City Hall, including the chambers where the city council meets to discuss city issues and vote. As a part of this program, groups learn about how our form of government works, how the City Council and mayor are chosen and what they do, and the services the city provides. Hopefully the experience of seeing the building where so many government functions are based will increase understanding of governmental processes as well as motivate participants to become involved in city programs and encourage good citizenship.
