Appointment by the City Council of applicants to the Beautification Commission, established by Ordinance 21-09.

After initial terms all vacancies will transition to two-year terms. 

At close of business on June 30, 2022, the City Clerk’s office had received six applicants through the online system. Above recommended term lengths are based on requests from the applicants.

If all current applicants are appointed, one vacancy for a one-year term will remain to be filled.
