All applications will expire on December 31st of each year. Applicants are responsible for reaching out to Clerk’s office to ensure the application is still on file, and if they would like their application to be considered for other Board vacancies.

Once Appointed to a Board, sembers shall follow the universal attendance policy adopted by the City Commission as outlined in Ordinance No. 2016-007 and Ordinance No. 2018-003 , as follows, and the Staff Liaison for each board will report attendance to the City Clerk’s office:

Ordinance No. 2016-007 creates a universal attendance policy for most boards, committees and task forces. Any member whose absences are unexcused for at least twenty-five (25) percent of the meetings for a twelve-month period or for three (3) consecutive meetings, whichever occurs first, is automatically resigned from his or her position on their respective board, committee or task force.
Some absence can be excused. They are defined as the following:
• When the member is performing an authorized alternative activity relating to outside board business that directly conflicts with the meeting
• The death of a member’s immediate family member, defined as a spouse, father, mother, brother, sister, stepparent, one who has stood in the place of a parent (in loco parentis), child, or stepchild of a member
• The death of a member’s domestic partner, or domestic partner’s father, mother, brother, sister, stepparent, one who has stood in the place of a parent (in loco parentis) of a domestic partner, child, or stepchild of a domestic partner;
• The member’s hospitalization
• When the member is summoned to jury duty
• When the member is issued a subpoena by a court of competent jurisdiction
• When the member is observing a religious holiday (policy amended by Ord. 2018-003)

Ordinance No. 2018-003
