View Current Board and Commission Openings

​You are encouraged to attend meetings of or apply to serve on a board or commission, because public involvement is an integral and important part of the governmental process. The City Council forms boards, commissions, and committees to gather and critically examine information and make recommendations to staff or the City Council on a variety of issues. In addition, several boards are delegated with decision-making authority.
