The City of Oak Ridge is recruiting members for four boards. The four boards are Oak Ridge Convention and Visitors Bureau, Environmental Quality Advisory Board, Trade Licensing Board, and Traffic Safety Advisory Board.
Applications from Oak Ridge residents are being accepted in the Oak Ridge City Clerk’s Office. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, June 29.
Here is more information about the boards and the vacancies:
- Convention and Visitors Bureau—three vacancies;
- Environmental Quality Advisory Board—five vacancies, including two youth vacancies;
- Trade Licensing Board—two vacancies; and
- Traffic Safety Advisory Board—one youth vacancy.
Oak Ridge residency is a mandatory qualification for all boards and commissions, with the exception of the Trade Licensing Board, a press release said. If no Oak Ridge residents apply, non-resident applicants will be considered if they meet certain qualifications.
For boards seeking youth appointments, including the Environmental Quality Advisory Board and Traffic Safety Advisory Board, student enrollment at Oak Ridge High School as of the 2018-2019 academic year is required.
Applicants must also complete a Boards and Commissions application available on the City Clerk’s departmental website by visiting www.oakridgetn.gov/online/cityclerk/bcelections. Those interested can choose to be considered for one or more board vacancies on their application.
Paper versions of the application are available in the City Clerk’s Office located in Room 109 of the Municipal Building at 200 South Tulane Avenue. Applicants may attach additional documents including cover letters, references, and resumes.
To be considered, completed applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by the deadline listed above on June 29. Late applications or submissions will not be considered. The election to fill boards and commissions vacancies will take place at the regular Oak Ridge City Council meeting on Monday, July 9.
