Boards Commissions

Current Term of Service: March 25, 2019 - March 23, 2020

Tenure of service is limited to one (1) year with the provision that an individual may be reappointed annually up to a maximum of eight (8) years of consecutive service, excepting Youth Commission service, which is limited to a maximum of four (4) consecutive years. All Boards and Committees are non-compensatory.

If you are interested in serving on a City Board, Committee, or Commission, please fill out the Civic Service Application Form. Every Application will be given careful consideration.
