Each year a recruitment process takes place to fill vacancies on the various boards and commissions. Beginning in December of each year, notices are published. Applications are accepted until late January of each year and the interview process with the City Council takes place in March. The majority of appointments are then made by April 30 of each year. Citizens are encouraged to apply during this main recruitment process or throughout the year, as vacancies do occur periodically.
