Sugar Land is looking for volunteers interested in giving their time, energy and expertise to serve as members on the City’s boards and commissions, groups that provide valuable insight and advice on various issues and events.
Each board and commission exercises a number of advisory and quasi-judicial powers and functions that are essential to the operation of city government. Serving on one of the City boards can be a very rewarding and hands-on experience.
Boards and commissions are created and enabled in different ways. Some are mandated by statute while others are created by City Council. Terms of office vary depending on the type of board, but generally run for one year, Oct. 1 through Sept. 30.
A brief description of the purpose, duties, responsibilities, and time commitment of each board or commission is available on the City’s Web site, www.sugarlandtx.gov, under “City Services and City Government.”
Applications can be downloaded from the website, or call the City Secretary’s office at (281) 275-2730 to have one mailed.
The completed application may be returned by fax at (281) 275-2316, by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered in person to City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd. North, Suite 122. The deadline for receipt of the application for appointment is Aug. 1.
