City accepting Board/Commission applications

October 10, 2018 01:30 PM

The City is now accepting  applications for persons interested in serving on the Liquor License Review Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals. 

The Liquor License Review Board (LLRB) consists of a 5 member Board and the Mayor who serves as the Liquor Commissioner.  The LLRB reviews all new and renewal applications or any complaint pertaining to a licensed establishment.  Recommendations by the Board are made to the Liquor Commissioner.  The Commission only meets as required.  The service term is three years.  Two positions will be filled. 

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is a seven-member board.  The service term of a member is 5 years.  Responsibilities include hearing requests for variations and making a determination based on interpretation of the City's Zoning Ordinance. The ZBA has authority to approve certain variances in cases of hardship (authorized variance), while others must be approved by the City Council, after a recommended by the ZBA (unauthorized variance). Two positions will be filled. 

Interested individuals should complete an application for Boards & Commissions and return it to Deputy Clerk Peterson before 11:59 p.m. November 15.  You will be contacted by the City to come in for a brief 10-15 minute interview on a Monday evening to meet with the Mayor's Advisory Board.  Each candidate that is recommended for appointment will be required to complete a non-fingerprint type background check, as required by Municipal Code.  Final appointment is made by the elected officials at a City Council meeting.
