To help guide our City into the future, the City Council (all of whom are volunteers serving without pay) solicits the participation of our residents to serve as volunteer board/commission members. Rewards for services are not measured in dollars but in the satisfaction of knowing that you care enough to give back to your community. The City Council conducts an annual call for board/commission applications early each year.
The City Council Nominating Committee meets in April to consider appointments to fill all anticipated vacancies, and then makes a recommendation to the entire City Council for action in May. Appointments are also made during the year as vacancies occur.
There are currently five established boards and commissions, and from time to time ad hoc groups are formed to focus on a particular issue. Additional information on each is included in the volunteer application form.
Application for Service
Please view the Application for Volunteer Service Form (PDF). Once completed, applications should be forwarded to the City Secretary. As is noted on the application, the City Council typically fills vacancies on all of the boards and commissions once annually. At times, however, there is a need to appoint individuals during the year.
