Want to Get Involved in Woodbury Government?
Applications for city advisory boards and commissions are due in late October.
About a week after Woodbury opened the door for high school students to serve on its Parks and Recreation Commission, the city on Wednesday sent out a notice of openings on other advisory boards.
The following groups have openings for 2013:
- Audit and Investment Commission
- Environmental Advisory Commission
- Planning Commission
- Watershed District
- Parks and Recreation Commission
Residents are appointed to advisory commissions and serve on a volunteer basis. The terms are for three years in most instances, though the slots for 11th- and 12th-grade high school students are one-year terms.
Applications for the positions are due Friday, Oct. 26.
All applicants will be interviewed by the Woodbury City Council on Saturday, Nov. 17. Criteria used by the council to evaluate candidates include:
- personal and professional experience which may relate to the subject areas of the board or commission;
- knowledge of the community;
- knowledge of city government process;
- contribution to creating or maintaining a diversity of membership with respect to geographic location, gender or race; and
- experience from similar appointments.
