Subject: Great Board Members Wanted for City Boards!

Contact: Katelyn Zeits, Deputy City Clerk 

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.

Election Commission
The primary purpose of the Election Commission is to appoint Election Inspector in advance of each election. Members of this board have minimal commitment, meeting approximately two times a year.

Traverse City Light and Power Board
Typically meets once a month, this board has exclusive jurisdiction, control and management of the Light and Power Department and all its operations and facilities. Unless specifically allocated to the City Commission or to a City official, the Board has all of the powers and duties possessed by the City to construct, acquire, expand and operate the Light and Power system.

For more information on these boards and other City boards, or to find our “Application to Become Involved, please visit www.traversecitymi.gov/boards.asp.

If you are interested in serving, please submit your application to the City Clerk’s Office by Friday, December 22, 2017 in person at 400 Boardman Ave., or by email: tcclerk@traversecitymi.gov.

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.
