The City has a wide variety of Boards and Commissions that encourage members to participate in discussions that affect and shape the future of our City. We believe it is not only the right, but the responsibility of interested and capable citizens to become engaged in local government policy by advising the Mayor and City Council on important community-related issues.
Throughout the remainder of the coronavirus pandemic and the State of Emergency, City Council has given authorization for all boards and commissions to meet virtually once a month for up to 3 hours (no limit on Council and Planning Commission meetings). Council has also approved one sub-committee meeting per month for up to six boards on a first come, first served basis. All meetings, except Ad-hoc task force meetings, must be coordinated with the City's Communications Department. Ad-hoc meetings will be supported by staff liaisons.
Applications for the Boards and Commissions with vacancies will be accepted through September 10, 2021 for consideration at the September 20, 2021 City Council meeting, unless stated otherwise.
The appointment process for the boards and commissions that are listed below includes an interview by City Council. Applications for these boards will be accepted through August 27, 2021. This deadline date will allow for Council to complete the interview process so that an appointment decision may be determined on September 20, 2021.
