CEDAR LAKE | The Town Council’s recent action will give young people in town a chance to help, and learn from, local government.

The council approved, per Town Manager Ian Nicolini’s request, the creation of a new Cedar Lake Local Government Internship/Fellowship program.

The program will take on up to two college students per year as unpaid interns. They will work with staff in various areas of town government. It is the first program of its kind in Cedar Lake.

“I see great things coming out of this (program),” said Councilman Ralph Miller.

The program will be geared to individuals with an interest in government. Interns may work in the Planning Department, on legal matters, or with Parks and Recreation, depending on the nature of their interest.

Having extra sets of eyes, ears, hands and talent in Town Hall could “give us the chance to take on a project we wouldn’t be able to do otherwise,” Nicolini said. “Plus, it’ll be a chance give back to this profession.”

Cedar Lake Town Hall is located at 7408 Constitution Avenue. For more information call (219) 374-7000.
