Board Details are given for each Board. Please read the requirements for each board to insure you meet the qualifications prior to applying. Specific residence requirements (within city limits or special district) apply to some boards.
    • 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.
