Redwood City announces that the application deadline for seats on four of its boards, commissions, or committees has been extended. The deadline for applications for the following seats is 5:00 p.m. on April 25th, 2012:

Residents with a strong desire and willingness to work diligently on behalf of the community are encouraged to apply. More information and applications are available online at www.redwoodcity.org/clerks , or may be requested by calling 650-780-7220.
Serving on a board, commission, or committee is an important way to offer new perspectives and ideas, and contribute to the City’s discussions and decisions on a variety of substantial matters. Members of these boards serve an essential function in helping to manage the significant issues our community faces – and being appointed requires a commitment to carrying out the responsibilities of serving. Applicants’ ability to build consensus, their willingness to offer thoughtful, productive recommendations, and their motivation to be prepared, informed, and engaged in their board’s work are all critical factors contributing to being appointed to a board, commission, or committee.
Typical basic requirements are that applicants must have a strong interest in civic involvement, must be 18 years of age or older, and must be registered voter and resident of incorporated Redwood City. More information on the specific boards, commissions, and committees for which the City is recruiting can be found online at www.redwoodcity.org/clerks .
