City Boards and Commissions: Apply by Jan. 6
The City of Georgetown is recruiting highly-qualified and dedicated individuals to serve as volunteers on one of Georgetown’s advisory boards or commissions. The deadline to apply for a volunteer position is Friday, Jan. 6.
Vacancies for volunteer positions need to be filled on the Building Standards Commission, Georgetown Transportation Enhancement Corporation, Georgetown Village Public Improvement District Advisory Board, and Youth Advisory Board. (Applicants to the Youth Advisory Board need to be students enrolled in the 8th through 12th grades.) Persons interested in serving on any of the boards and commissions are encouraged to apply.
The City’s boards and commissions advise the City Council and guide City staff. Boards address a range of civic areas including accessibility, aging, animal services, arts and culture, building standards, civil service, community services, economic development, ethics, finance, historic preservation, housing, library, main street, parks and recreation, planning, tourism, transportation, utilities, youth, and zoning.
An online application to apply as well as descriptions of boards and commissions can be found at georgetown.org/council-boards-agendas. Applicants may include a resume of no more than two pages with the application. An application also may be printed and mailed to Mayor Ross and the City Council, PO Box 409, Georgetown, TX, 78627.
Terms for City board and commission members begin in March. Most board and commission members serve two-year terms and most boards and commissions meet monthly or as needed.
