The Mayor appoints citizen boards to advise the Mayor and City Council on various specialized topics. Boards and commissions usually meet monthly, and meetings are open to the public.
Service on a Board or Commission
Service on a board or commission is a great way to gain understanding of how local government functions, and can be a springboard to service in an elected office.
Board and commission members are generally appointed to 3- or 4-year terms, beginning in January. Please see each commission or board's page to learn more.
