Advisory Boards & Committees

Serve on a Committee

Mayor Will Joyce and the City Council are seeking applications for individuals to serve on various committees, boards, and commissions. The City of Stillwater greatly values the contributions of residents in our decisions and we are committed to identify and recruit the best candidates to serve our community. 

The Mayor and City Council rely on the thoughtful advice of these committees, boards, and commissions, which cover a wide range of topics and appeal to a variety of interests, to create policies and develop programs.

Time Commitments and Requirements

All committees, boards, and commissions vary in their requirements for serving and time commitments. For a description and requirements for serving, view the Comprehensive List of Boards and Committees (PDF). Be sure you are able to meet the time requirements of the committee, board, or commission to which you apply.

How to Apply

The City of Stillwater seeks applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences to reflect the views and effectively represent the diverse communities of Stillwater. Appointments are generally made when terms expire and serving members do not wish to be reappointed or when members leave for other reasons, such as resignation.

To apply online, submit an application form online. Applications are retained for three years and are reviewed when vacancies occur for a specific committee, board, or commission.
