Traverse City residents are invited to participate in the process of government by serving on one of the city's citizen boards and committees. Through this service, civic-minded citizens can become involved in their local government. The city, in turn, benefits from the knowledge, experience and expertise of our citizens.

 Board of Tax Review
The purpose of the Board of Tax Review is to examine, review, and correct the assessment roll. Members of this board have minimal commitment, only meeting periodically throughout the year.  This person shall be a City resident. 

Local Officers Compensation Commission
This Commission determines the salaries of such local elected offices, which determination shall be the salaries of the legislative bodies.  This board is a low commitment, meeting only in odd years. 

 If you are interested in serving, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 231-922-4480 by Friday, February 3, 2017 for an “Application to Become Involved” or visit our website:

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis for all boards and commissions, and are kept on file for a period of one year; applicants must not be in default to the City.
