City seeks applicants for boards and commissions

Applications are being accepted for more than 186 openings on 24 City boards and commissions. Board and commission members are appointed by the City Council and Mayor and help shape key policy decisions and provide community input on City services. Boards and commissions fall into a handful of categories: appeal boards, development boards, general advisory boards, and special service districts, which are defined areas within the city where special services are provided.

ity employees who live in Minneapolis are welcome to apply for these volunteer positions. Employees are also asked to encourage Minneapolis residents they know to apply. The City is encouraging applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences to apply to serve on City boards and commissions.

Applications will be reviewed beginning October 19; however, positions will remain open until filled. For a full list of appointment opportunities and position descriptions, visit the boards and commissions website at www.minneapolismn.gov/boards.
