Volunteers Needed to Serve on Arlington Boards, Commissions

The City of Arlington is accepting applications for interested residents who would like to serve on a Board or Commission.

Members of boards and commissions assist the Mayor and City Council by making recommendations on general policy matters impacting the city. Most boards and commissions function in advisory capacities and some have final decision-making authority. Some may require specialized training and licenses.

Members are appointed by the Mayor and City Council to serve a two-year term.

“Serving on a board or commission provides residents with the opportunity to give input into matters that shape Arlington’s future and ensure that The American Dream City remains a vibrant, thriving community for all,” said Jennifer Wichmann, Management Resources Director.

Hello…along with Jock and Merri, I’m also curious about support for the arts in Arlington.

Merri Brewer Crain

I think it would be wonderful to add an arts commission. First class cities pay attention to the arts and their funding. Under which current committee do the arts fall? No where?

Jock Bethune

I would like to know the same – thanks!
