Boards and Commissions
The City of Georgetown is fortunate to have a large number of citizens who are willing to volunteer their time, energy, and expertise to serve the community as members of our various boards and committees.

The Annual Appointment process for all city Boards and Commissions will begin in July. The applications for all Boards will be opened on July 1 and remain open until July 31. Appointments will be made by the Mayor and City Council in late August. With new terms beginning October 1. New term periods will begin on October 1, coinciding with our fiscal year.
- Board details, including description, staff liaison and bylaws, along with the Member Roster for each board are available by clicking on Boards and choosing the board you are interested in. Board Details are given for each Board.
- Appointments are made by recommendation of the Mayor, and approval of the Council, as needed during the year. Each regular term will begin October 1 for all new and reappointed members. Terms are usually two-year terms and are staggered on each board so that a board always has experienced members.
- During the year, applications may only be submitted for a board if there is a vacancy on that board. Those vacancies are listed on the Vacancies Tab and applications are only available for those boards. If an application is submitted, and you are not appointed, your application will be kept on file for a year in case any vacancies occur. You will be contacted if your application is chosen for appointment.
- Most Boards require you to be a Georgetown resident, or reside in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, unless the ordinance or law creating the board or commission states otherwise. Some boards seek to have certain areas of expertise, i.e. Animal Shelter Advisory Board seeks local veterinarians. The requirements for each board are listed in the Details Tab, and on the application.
