One of the most immediate action items I have as a newly elected Commissioner is to appoint people to the Parks and Recreation Board, the Planning Board, and the Public Art Committee. This is a great opportunity for residents to take an active role in the direction of our City. While the Parks and Recreation Board has only a residency requirement, both the Planning Board and Public Art Committee have additional requirements that must be met. Click here for more information. If you are interested in serving on one of these boards, please get your application into the City Clerk’s office by 5 pm on Thursday, February 2, 2017.
If you would like a better understanding of how our City operates, I encourage you to consider applying for Tamarac University. I went through the program in 2013 and learned a lot about how the City works as a whole and about each individual department. Click here for more information. The deadline to apply for Tamarac University is Friday, January 27, 2017.
