Any qualified resident may serve on a City government board or commission.
Serving on a board offers a unique opportunity for meaningful involvement in civic life and a rare opportunity for public service. The responsibility is great, and so are the rewards.
A Range of Service
Boards and commissions perform a variety of functions and provide a wide range of service to the City Council. Some boards, such as autonomous and quasi-judicial boards, are independent and operate outside the direct control of the Council. Some, such as examining and administrative boards, handle licensing and other specific administrative functions. Others, such as legislative and policy-making boards, are strongly advisory in nature and provide the Council with an important source of citizen information and opinion.
In all cases, whether the City Council has created the board and appointed all its members, or whether the City Council has appointed a representative to serve on a larger, regional group, the board and commission members serve as important public aides to City Council.
