There are currently open seats on West Carrollton’s City Beautiful Commission, Recreation Board, and Personnel Appeals Board. West Carrollton’s City Beautiful Commission (CBC) is responsible for making recommendations to the council for improvements to the city’s streets, parks & public owned spaces as well as promoting community pride. The CBC also helps coordinate events such as Arbor Day, Flower Awards, Community Pride Day and the Holiday Festival.

The Recreation Board is a five-member board that also includes appointments from the West Carrollton School District. Members serve five-year terms and discuss various recreational opportunities available in the city.

The Personnel Appeals Board is a three-person committee which meets only when necessary to hear an appeal of a city employee or officer which has been suspended, reduced in rank, or removed from a position.

Interested applicants for any volunteer board or commission can call the City Manager’s Office at (937) 847-4633 or download an application here. The positions are decided by the West Carrollton city council, which meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month at the Civic Center, 300 East Central Avenue.

In addition to swimming, there will be dog contests and activities such as a look-alike and costume contests, and a tennis ball fetch contest.

Several dog rescue organizations will showcase dogs that are available for adoption. “We’ve had several successful adoptions each year,” Norton said.
