Boards & Commissions
The City of Berkley is successful because of the tremendous support from residents who voluntarily serve on various city boards and commissions. Board and commission members support city operations by supporting department initiatives, advising city officials on important matters, and serving as ambassadors in their respective neighborhoods.
Residents who are interested in serving on a board or commission should note the following:
- Most boards and commissions work with specific departments as described in the City Charter.
- To be considered, potential applicants must submit a completed Board & Commission application to the City Manager’s Office.
- In general, board and commission members are appointed by the Mayor and City Council and not compensated for their time.
- Newly appointed board and commission members are required to complete and sign a Code of Ethics and Conflict of Interest Form, as well as, take an Oath of Office.
- Appointed members are required to comply with the Open Meetings Act and Freedom of Information Act requests related to board activities and duties.
