The Oak Ridge City Clerkâ€™s Office is accepting applications to fill vacancies on city boards and commissions for terms beginning Jan. 1.
To be considered, completed applications must be submitted to the City Clerkâ€™s Office by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16. Late applications or submissions will not be considered.

â€œLast year, the City Council had an outstanding selection of applicants to choose from, and we have high expectations again this year,â€ City Manager Mark Watson said. â€œFocusing our efforts on a single, end-of-the-year election provides an efficient recruiting process for our various board openings. I encourage residents who are seeking a fulfilling opportunity for community involvement to apply.â€
The elections for the boards will take place at a special meeting of the Oak Ridge City Council on Monday, Dec. 17.
Interested applicants can view the 2012 City Council’s goals for the boards and commissions on the cityâ€™s website, which also has information about the purpose and composition of the various boards.
