Boards and Commissions
Welcome to the new Boards and Commission database for Georgetown. http://georgetown.org/boardscommissions/.
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 in February, or as needed during the year.
Each regular term begins March 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.
Applications for all Boards are available in Open Enrollment which runs from November 1 through December 30th. Anyone wishing to serve a second term, or who is currently an alternate, must reapply for reappointment.
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.
All applications require online completion and an attached resume.
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.
If you need assistance, please contact the City Secretary’s office at 512-930-3651 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
