City seeks volunteers for commission, committee seats

Applications due March 20, with interviews to follow

Pleasanton city officials are looking for residents interested in serving the community on one of the city commissions and committees that oversee specific topic areas and make recommendations to the City Council.

Seats are available on seven groups, including regular seats on the Planning Commission, Parks and Recreation Commission, Civic Arts Commission, Human Services Commission and Library Commission.

The city is also recruiting for high school, middle school and adult representatives for the Youth Commission as well as representatives from commercial real estate development, commercial real estate broker, financial services and medical services for the Economic Vitality Committee.

Terms vary for each of the commissions and committees, but they are typically four-year terms with a two-term maximum. Applicants should look at the individual commission or committee for which they are applying to get specific details.

All applicants must live within the Pleasanton city limits.

Applications are due March 20 at 5 p.m. Mayor Jerry Thorne will interview candidates on March 26 and March 29. The mayor will make recommendations for all available posts, and his colleagues on the City Council will be asked to ratify Thorne's list, typically on the consent calendar.

For more information, contact the City Clerk's Office at 931-5027. Applications are available online on the city website.

The problem with these committee meetings, they meet in the evening hours.

If there are any of these committee meetings in the early morning hours with coffee and cinnamon rolls, I am all in.
