The deadline to apply to serve on city boards and commissions has been extended to December 31.
This year’s process is similar to previous years in that interested residents must complete a Boards and Commissions application and may attach additional documents that includes cover letters, references, and resumes. The application allows residents to choose and rank their top three board choices for membership consideration.
The application is available on the City’s website at www.oakridgetn.gov. Applications are also available in the City Clerk’s Office, Room Number 109, in the Municipal Building, located at 200 South Tulane Avenue.
Applications must be received in the City Clerk’s office by 5 p.m. Wednesday, December 31st. Late applications or submissions will not be considered.
Citizens who have already submitted applications need not re-apply; however, they may amend their application or submit additional applications should they wish to do so.
The election for all boards will take place at the January 12, 2015, meeting of the Oak Ridge City Council.
Interested residents can also visit the City’s website to learn about the different boards’ composition, purpose, meeting schedules, and review the special qualifications for membership to certain boards.
