The city of Davis is accepting applications from residents who are interested in serving on seven local commissions: Bicycle Advisory, Finance and Budget, Human Relations, Natural Resources, Open Space and Habitat, Recreation and Park and Senior Citizens.

Commissions serve as a conduit for citizen input — a way of gathering, analyzing and recommending options to the City Council.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and live in or own a business within the Davis Joint Unified School District boundary. Pick up applications at the city clerk’s office at City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd., during regular business hours, or downloaded them at http://city-managers-office.cityofdavis.org/city-clerk/apply-to-serve-on-a-city-commission.

All applications and accompanying documents are considered public information and may be disclosed or released pursuant to the California Public Records Act.

In addition to the application form, commission applicants will participate in a five-minute private interview with a council subcommittee and city staff. Applications are tentatively scheduled to be submitted to the council for appointment in December of January.

The application deadline is Oct. 18.
