Boards & Commissions

Apply to Serve on a Board or Commission

This process begins with solicitation of applicants to fill expiring or vacant terms on city boards and commissions. The City Council appoints volunteers to numerous City Boards, Commissions, and Committees to serve fellow citizens and City Council in an advisory capacity and/or in carrying out functions required by city code and state statute. 


The City Secretary's Office maintains a file of applicants interested in being considered by City Council for appointment as a board or commission member. Applications are solicited as often as necessary during the year to provide a pool of applicants. Appointments are generally made by the City Council in January of each year. Terms are effective immediately. 


Appointments may be made for a full term or  to fill an unexpired term. Terms for board and commission members are generally 2 years, but terms are determined by the specific board or commission. Alternate members serve a 1-year term. Board and commission members may be considered for reappointment.
