Put Your Ideas into Action on a Carrollton Board or Commission
The City of Carrollton is now accepting applications for the 2018 Boards & Commissions appointments in October. Residents are encouraged to get involved in the areas of community life that mean the most to them.
City government depends on residents who volunteer their time and expertise as members of boards, commissions, and committees. By lending a more diverse viewpoint for City Council to consider, their actions help shape and influence public policy. Citizen involvement is vital in setting the direction for Carrollton's future.
The following boards have available seats: Capital Improvements Plan Advisory Committee (CIPAC), Historic Preservation Advisory Committee (HPAC), Library Board, Museum Board, Neighborhood Advisory Commission (NAC), Parks & Recreation Board, Planning & Zoning Commission (P&Z), Property Standards Board (PSB), Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone No. 1 (TIRZ), and the Traffic Advisory Committee (TAC).
Applications will be accepted until Monday, September 10 at 5:30 p.m.
The Carrollton Home Rule Charter establishes certain qualifications that must be met by all members of City boards, commissions, and committees. To serve, you must have been a resident of Texas for at least one year with at least six of those months as a Carrollton resident; be a qualified Carrollton voter at the time of appointment; not have been convicted of a crime of moral turpitude; not be an adversary party to pending litigation against the City, except for eminent domain proceedings; and have a creditable record of attendance and performance in any previous board service.
Carrollton City Council will discuss the appointments in an October worksession during a Council meeting. Some boards and commissions will require interviews for potential candidates. Citizens selected for an interview will be contacted to schedule the time. All applicants will be notified after the appointment process.
