City seeks volunteers

Germantown residents interested in serving on city commissions can now apply for appointments which begin January 1.
The commissions and boards, appointed by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, generally act in an advisory capacity to elected officials and city departments in planning, finance, recreation, education, development, beautification, transportation, personnel and other areas.
“Citizens as commissioners and board members share extraordinary expertise and interest with elected officials and professional staff,” said Mayor Sharon Goldsworthy. “Not only do they provide valuable input to decisions eventually made by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, some commissions also develop and conduct activities that benefit the community, such as the Senior Expo, Safety City, Remodeled Homes and Landscape Tour.”
Application forms are available at Municipal Center, 1930 S. Germantown Road, or online at www.germantown-tn.gov. Forms are due by Dec. 3 at the City Clerk’s office. The Board will appoint board and commission members in mid-December.
Generally, commissions meet once a month. Some with subcommittees or special activities require additional sessions. An alderman serves as liaison to each commission or board. Most terms are for one year.
