Boards & Committees

The City Clerk's office is accepting applications to serve on a City Board/Committee.  Interested persons are encouraged to fill out an application online or in person at the City Clerk's office located at City Hall during normal business hours.  Applications on file are regularly sent to the City Councilors who then reach out to applicants to discuss serving on committees.  The Council votes on appointments to the boards and committees at the regular City Council meetings. All appointed committee members must take the oath of office before the City Clerk.

For most Boards, City Councilors may appoint from anywhere in the City as long as there is no more than a certain amount of representation from any one district.  Not sure which district you live in?  Open the street directory and look up your address to see.  


Information about each of the City's committees & boards can be found on the pages to the left.  On each committee page you will find current members, agendas, and minutes.   For a general description of each committee, please click here.   Contact the City Clerk if you would like more information.
