Announcing Vacancies On City Advisory Boards And Commissions

Mayor-elect Lee Lansing and the City Council are seeking applicants to fill volunteer positions on City advisory boards, commissions and committees.

At the end of December, the terms of about one third of the 88 members of the Citys boards, commissions and committees will expire. Those positions will be filled by appointments and reappointments. There will be openings for new members on the Design Advisory Board, Economic Development Authority, Environmental Quality Commission, Human Rights Commission, Library Board, Park Board, Planning Commission, and Police Civil Service Commission.

Over 100 citizen members annually provide valuable leadership to the City through their participation on these groups and special study committees. As the titles of the groups suggest, the members participate in advisory, regulatory, governance and oversight activities in a wide variety of fields. The City Council is committed to appointing citizens who represent diverse qualifications and viewpoints and values the knowledge, collective experience and efforts of these groups.

Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2004. Additional information and applications may be obtained in the Administration Office, City Hall, 801 Washington Street, Northfield, MN 55057, at the Northfield Public Library, by calling Deb Little at 507-645-3001, via e-mail at or on line at
