Unless a specific advisory body has a City residency requirement, it is the policy of the City Council to appoint, whenever possible, residents of the City to fill appointive positions on all City commissions, boards and committees. Unless otherwise noted in the membership description of one of these bodies, the Mayor shall appoint members to all official City commissions, and boards, and they shall be ratified by the City Council.
Boards and Commissions make studies and prepare recommendations for Council consideration. The members of the Boards and Commissions are appointed by the Council.
The Council, itself, sits as the governing board of the Parking Authority and the Housing Advisory and Appeals Board. All meetings are open to the public, and citizens are encouraged to attend and participate.
Vacancies are posted as required by law. Applications for Board vacancies are only accepted when a vacancy or expiring term occurs, and applications are kept on file for a period of one year.
