​Responsibilities regarding City boards and commissions are split between the City Clerk’s Office and the Mayor’s Office. The City Clerk's Office is responsible for maintaining the rosters of City boards and commissions and an up to date calendar of meetings. The Mayor’s Office is responsible for managing the application and appointment process. 

The links below provide regarding City boards and co​​mmissions including, meeting schedules, me​e​ting agendas & minutes, a list of vacancies and the online application form for service on City boards and commissions. 

Please note that many meetings have switched from in-person to a remote digital platform due to the pandemic. Please check agendas and meeting notices for the latest information.  

Boards and Commissions application

The Mayor and City Council appoint over 250 members of the community to serve on boards, commissions, and committees. Although the requirement for appointment to each of the dozens of different boards, commissions, or committees can vary significantly, all appointments begin with identifying a vacancy and completing the online application process.

Alerts inform subscribers when recording secretaries add or update information in the Legistar database and the alert email provides some information about the meeting with a direct link to full meeting details.
