Boards & Commissions

Serving Our Community
The City currently has three permanent local boards and six permanent commissions / committees. The Mayor makes all appointments, subject to confirmation by majority vote of the City Council.

Terms for local boards are generally two years, with varying term limits. Terms for commissions / committees are generally four years, with a term limit of two terms. In order to provide for continuity, terms are staggered so that some expire in December of every election (even-numbered) year.

Board / Committee Openings

The City Clerk generally advertises openings approximately two months prior to a term expiration. Openings which occur mid-term may be filled through a new advertisement or by utilizing existing applications, based on the circumstances and timing of the vacancy.  The City Council is currently looking to fill a vacancy on the Heritage and Cultural Arts Commission.  The deadline to apply is Friday, March 2, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. 

Local Appointments Listing

In compliance with the requirements of the Maddy Act, Government Code 54972, the Local Appointments List is posted by December 31 of each year. It shows all current commission, committee, and board members appointed by the City Council and the dates of their terms of office.

Member Requirements

Commissioners and committee members must reside in the City of Dublin and be 18 years of age or older (with the exception of members of the Youth Advisory Committee and the student representative on the Parks and Community Services Commission).
