Community members are encouraged to volunteer to serve on a board or commission. Typically the City accepts applications in November and December. The City Council reviews all applications and may hold interviews in January and February. The appointments are made by the Mayor and then confirmed by the City Council. Appointments will be announced each March with board member and commissioner terms beginning in April each year.
Advisory boards and commissions meet monthly and provide recommendations to the Blaine City Council. These boards and commissions hold public hearings and are part of the official governmental process in Blaine.
