Boards and Committees

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Serving on a board or committee is a great opportunity to participate in local government. We have 21 active advisory board and committees, each created to perform specific functions. In addition, task forces and ad-hoc committees may be created to address particular issues.

Below you'll find a listing of all our Boards and Committees, vacancies and information on how to apply.

How to Apply

To apply, submit a Board Membership Application.

The City Commission appoints members of the boards and committees. All positions are voluntary and members are not compensated for their time. However, the individuals who serve on the boards and committees provide an invaluable service to the city. Their advice and expertise on a wide range of topics assist the City Commission in its decision-making process.

Board Member applications must be received no later than ten (10) business days prior to the first City Commission Meeting at which the Commissioner is eligible to nominate and appoint the prospective board member.

In general, individuals may serve on only one board or committee at a given time, with the exception of ad-hoc committees or task forces. Most advisory groups meet at least once a month, however, there are varying degrees of commitment, depending on the board. Membership requirements vary with each board and committee. 

If you wish to update an existing application that was submitted before Oct 1, 2018, then please update here.
