New Council Welcomes Record Number of Applicants
for City Commissions
 
The number of applicants for City Commissions and Committees in 2015 more than doubled from the previous application period in 2013. 55 applications were submitted for the commissions in 2015, compared to 21 applications in 2013.

Appointments for the majority of the commissions and committees are made by the council every two years however, according to City Clerk Maria Morris, the Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee is on a different schedule, thus appointments will not be made to that committee until December 2015. 

The Planning Commission had the largest increase in applicants, with 17 applying in 2015 as opposed to only 8 in 2013.

The new council also reinstated the Design Review Committee, which was disbanded last year by the previous council. As of date of publication, appointments had not yet been made to that commission.
