Board and Commission members must be qualified electors of the City and not be an appointed official, an elected official or an employee of the City. They may serve multiple terms and are appointed by the Mayor with the confirmation of Council. A letter expressing the desire to serve on a board or commission may be forwarded to the office of the Mayor where they will be kept on file until an opening occurs. Only the Civil Service Commission receives remuneration; all other board positions are voluntary and members serve without pay.
