Deadline approaches for City boards

The deadline is approaching for citizens to apply for City of Sisters boards and committees. The City has several opportunities that allow community members to fill an integral role in City government by advising the City Council on important issues.

Community participation on City of Sisters boards and commissions serves two essential purposes: Board members are directly involved in their local government and can positively impact their community’s future, and the City Council receives timely input and information regarding issues and potential impacts on the City. The various boards and commissions serve in an advisory capacity to the City Council within their respective municipal policy areas. Members are unpaid volunteers who devote their time to these community activities.

The City is accepting applications for openings on the following boards:

• Budget Committee: Two openings. Applicants must live within the city limits. One position will be appointed to a three-year term and one to a two-year term.

• Urban Forestry Board: One opening. This position will be appointed to a three-year term.

• City Parks Advisory Board: Four openings. Three are in-city positions, one can be out of the city. The positions will be appointed to three-year terms.

• Public Works Advisory Board: One opening for an in-city position. The position will be appointed for a one-year term. The City will be accepting applications for these positions until October 29 at 5 p.m. Interviews for open positions will occur in late November, and appointments will be made at the first City Council meeting in December. Appointees’ new term will begin at the first meeting of their committee.
