City recruits for advisory commissions

The city of Davis is looking for volunteers to serve as members of the Natural Resources Commission (one vacant seat) and Social Services Commission (two vacant seats). The deadline to apply is Friday, April 6.

By serving on a city commission, residents can participate in local government and help plan Davis’ future. Commissions serve as a conduit for citizen input — a way of gathering, analyzing and recommending options to the City Council.

“Commissions provide an important avenue for determining the community’s feelings about various issues and extending the reach of the democratic process,” a news release said.

The Natural Resources Commission — which advises the council on the preservation, management and enhancement of the city’s natural resources — meets the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

The Social Services Commission — which advises the council on matters relating to issues of social services including health, affordable housing, homelessness, hunger, transit and low-income needs — meets the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m.

Both commissions meet in Community Chambers at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.

Davis residency is required to serve on a city commission. For applications, visit the city clerk’s office at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd., Suite 4, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, go to www.cityofdavis.org/cmo/commapp.cfm or call (530) 757-5648 to have an application emailed or mailed to you.

Applicants may include a résumé or other information for the City Council to consider during the selection process. They should be aware that all applications and accompanied documents are considered public information and may be disclosed/released pursuant to the California Public Records Act.

Applications are submitted to the City Council for appointment at a regular council meeting. To determine when your application will be submitted to the council, contact Ann Waid at (530) 757-5648 or awaid@cityofdavis.org.
