Applying for Advisory Commissions
The City of Woodbury fills all vacancies on the advisory commissions each fall. All of the openings are volunteer positions that are appointed by the City Council. The terms begin in January following Council approval, and appointments are for three years unless noted otherwise.
How to Apply for Advisory Commissions
- Generally, the city announces the openings on the advisory commissions in the Woodbury Bulletin, City Update newsletter, and on the city website. September is the usual time frame.
- All applicants are interviewed by the City Council at a meeting scheduled sometime after the application deadline. This meeting most often occurs in November.
- Criteria used by the City Council to evaluate candidates include: personal and professional experience which may relate to the subject areas of the board or commission; knowledge of the community; knowledge of city government process; contribution to creating or maintaining a diversity of membership with respect to geographic location, gender or race; experience from similar appointments.
