Persons interested in serving should be registered voters and are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. No prior government experience is needed.

Additional details: The City Council consists of a mayor and six councilors, all nonpartisan offices, elected at large except when vacancies are filled by appointment of a majority vote of the Council. City Council members attend council meetings to hear the concerns of citizens, discuss city policies, changes to current laws, city goals, budget adoption, finances, strategic planning, major projects and infrastructure improvements, as well as community growth and land use planning. They also determine the need to change or pass laws within the city’s municipal code. The Neighborhood Enhancement Commission acts as an advisory body to the city staff and City Council on matters pertaining to developing and preserving aesthetic, recreational and cultural values to enhance quality of life in neighborhoods throughout the community. The commission also serves as the city’s parks and tree advisory committee, in addition to supporting an annual Arbor Day observance and complying with the standards of the Tree City USA program. The Planning Commission has special land-use authority under Oregon law to address land use matters, render judgment, and/or pass recommendations on certain matters to the City Council.
