The City of Apache Junction is seeking applicants for various boards and commissions.
Serving on a board or commission provides an opportunity to work closely with other citizens and the City Council to help make decisions about the future of the city.
Board and commission members are appointed by council after submission of an application and a council interview during a work session meeting. Appointments are unpaid and serve a fixed term. Terms vary by board and commission.
The following is a list of current vacancies and the term lengths:
All appointments require residency within the City of Apache Junction with the exception of the Construction Code Board of Appeals and the Health and Human Services Commission. Members of the Superstition Mountains Community Facilities District (sewer district) board must own property in the district, which includes unincorporated areas around the city, but no more than 40 acres.
While it is helpful if you have some experience or knowledge about the board or commission on which you wish to serve, the desire to contribute your talents, ideas and opinions to enhance the community is most important. Time commitments vary based on the specific appointment; some meet monthly while others meet on an as-needed basis.
Applications must be submitted online by Tuesday, Sept. 15, and can be found at ajcity.net/boards. Additional information on the city’s boards and commissions is also available online.
For those who do not have access to a computer, applications can be submitted online using a public computer available at the Apache Junction Public Library, 1177 N. Idaho Road.
Candidates are scheduled to be interviewed and appointed at council meetings in October. For additional information or assistance, call the city clerk’s office at 480-474-5061.
