City of Rochester has open board positions
Mayor Brede's office has put out a call for Rochester residents interested in filling multiple open positions on citizen oversight committees.
Here's the list:
- Citizens Advisory on Transit
- Committee on Urban Design & Environment (CUDE)
- Energy Commission
- Mayo Civic Center Commission
- Planning and Zoning Commission
The mayor is responsible for interviewing candidates and submitting his choices to the city council. Each board/committee meets about once a month and is responsible for making recommendations to city staff and the council.
The positions are volunteer based and offer no compensation. However, they do provide community members a hands-on experience in city government.
You can follow this link to apply for seats on a city board, commission or committee. Applications for the above positions are due by Nov. 19, 2017. Citizens who do not have internet access may apply at the Rochester Public Library.
