Serving on a commission is a rewarding way to get involved in and serve your community!
The Mayor and each City Councilmember appoints one member to each commission, subject to ratification by a majority of the City Council. Appointments are made at the first regular City Council meeting in January following each regular election year. (Elections are held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in even-numbered years (every two years)). Each member of a City commission is appointed for a two-year term commencing at the February meeting of the year of appointment.
Each member of a City Commission shall receive compensation in the amount of $50.00 per meeting (DHSMC 2.40).
If vacancies in any commission occur other than by expiration of term, such vacancy shall be filled by appointment by the Mayor or Councilmember who had appointed the member whose office has been vacated subject to ratification by a majority of the City Council.
