Seeking applicants for 2014 Boards and Commissions
Looking to get involved with your City government and serve your fellow citizens? The Arvada City Council is currently recruiting applicants to fill vacancies for boards and commissions.
Arvada's citizen-appointed boards and commissions have been established for the purpose of acquiring and studying information in specific areas and to make recommendations to the City Council and staff on issues within the board's area of expertise. Some boards are quasi-judicial and have decision-making powers within their areas of expertise and some are advisory boards. The City relies heavily on citizen volunteers to study special community issues, provide staff direction, obtain public comment on key projects and take action or offer recommendations to City Council on any number of matters. These groups are the community's voice that influences public policy and decisions that impact the entire City.
There are currently openings on ten boards. If you are interested in applying, you will need to complete the application form and the questionnaire specific to each board for which you are applying. You can be considered for up to three different boards on one application form; be sure to rank your preference on the application. Links to all the forms are on the right. You need to complete only one application form. After completing the forms, you can save and email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org; or you can print and mail them to: City Clerk's Office, City of Arvada, P.O. Box 8101, Arvada, CO 80001. You may also attach a short resume, although it is not required. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. Tentatively, interviews will be scheduled for the week of March 17, 2014. Appointments will be made in April. If you have any questions, please contact the City Clerk's Office at 720-898-7550.
