Are you interested in getting more involved in your city? Do you have approximately one evening a month that you could spend to help improve the community?
The city has a need for volunteers on five different volunteer boards or commissions. The openings are available on the Board of Zoning Appeals, City Beautiful Commission, Income Tax Review Board, Planning Commission and Recreation Board.
If interested, please download a volunteer application or obtain one at the Civic Center, 300 E. Central Ave., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“We need people who are interested in getting involved,” said Mayor Jeff Sanner. “Active civic engagement is essential to a thriving community,” he said.
The Board of Zoning Appeals meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The board members, who serve five-year terms, deal with residential or business appeals to decisions about the city’s zoning code.
The City Beautiful Commission meets at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month. The commission plans way to encourage the beautification of the community and also helps to host community-wide events such as the Rake Rally and Community Pride Day.
The Income Tax Board of Review meets as needed to discuss resolutions to citizen complaints about tax collection.
The Planning Commission, which meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month, serves as review board for new building or redevelopment plans submitted to the city. Commission members serve five-year terms.
The Recreation Board meets at 6:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month. Recreation board members, two who are appointed by the West Carrollton School Board, meet to discuss sports and recreational programming options in the city.
