Are you ready to serve your City?

October 1, 2018 07:30 AM

The City is now accepting  applications for one vacancy on the Animal Commission and one vacancy on the Community Health Commission. 

The Animal Commission meets as required and consists of three citizen members for overlapping terms of three years.  Its objective is to make determinations regarding whether a particular animal is a dangerous animal or an at-risk animal as defined in the Park Ridge Municipal Code.  An applicant with knowledge of working with animals is highly preferred.  

The Community Health Commission focuses on six areas: Disease Education and Prevention; Emergency Preparedness and Resiliency; Environmental Health and Sustainability; Outreach to Special Populations; Substance Use and Mental Health; and Wellness and Safety.  It meets on the fourth Thursday each month.  Its goals are to expand overall communication with the community at large to promote healthy living and awareness of opportunities to improve individual, family and community health.

Interested individuals should complete an application for Boards & Commissions and return it to Deputy Clerk Peterson before 11:59 p.m. October 7.  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.  If recommended for appointment by the Board, you 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.

For more information, please search the website for "Boards and Commissions."

Thank you for your interest in serving the City of Park Ridge.  Many times it has been said that the volunteers are the backbone of our community.  The City is extremely grateful for those who have chosen  to serve.
