On the agenda: City Council to appoint new boards and commissions members

City Council will announce Monday who they have appointed to municipal government boards and commissions. Each commissioner serves a yearlong term with no more than eight consecutive terms. Youth Commission members, however, may only serve four years in a row. Monday’s Council agenda shows that 10 commissioners are terming out.

The Council will make new picks and renew some to the boards, which include the Civil Service Commission/Board of Appeals, HCDA Citizen Advisory Committee, Board of Library Trustees, Parks and Recreation Committee, Planning Commission, Design Review Board, Transportation Commission, Youth Commission, the Alhambra City Arts and Cultural Events Committee, and the Environmental Committee. 

Councilmembers appoint Alhambra residents to the various boards and commissions. The appointments are announced once a year, though positions may become vacant and need to be filled at any time. Interested residents can fill out an application for these municipal positions and return it to the city in order to be considered. The application states “Civic service is a privilege and responsibility of interested, qualified, sincere citizens. The value and importance of wide participation of a large number of citizens cannot be measured.” Applications are kept on file for two years or until the applicant is appointed to a position.

The long-debated Midwick development was set to have another public hearing this Monday, but the item has been pushed back to City Council’s April 27 meeting. Developer City Ventures asked for more time to address the concerns that have been discussed between Councilman Luis Ayala and residents who contest the project.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
