Budget and Audit BoardThere is one opening for a three-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2024. This board serves as a financial oversight committee for the city by reviewing city financial statements and budget forecasts and providing feedback on budgetary compliance with city policies. It is preferred that members possess a background in capital budgeting and strategic financial planning and have familiarity with financial statement audits. The board typically meets four to five times a year.
Board of AppealsThere are two openings for three-year terms beginning immediately. This board makes decisions about appeals from any requirement or order by the city’s codes administrator. Members must have experience in building construction. The board typically meets four or five times a year for one to two hours.
Lakewood Advisory CommissionThere are several openings, which will open until filled. Commission members serve in an advisory role to the City Council by researching specific issues or topics of interest to residents and making recommendations to City Council for potential action on those topics. Members should plan to attend a minimum of two meetings a month: a full commission meeting and a committee meeting. Applicants must attend both a full commission meeting and one individual subcommittee meeting before applying. Watching previously recorded meetings in the archives at LakewoodSpeaks.org will meet this requirement. For more information, visit Lakewood.org/LAC.
Noxious Weed Local Advisory BoardThere are two openings for three-year terms beginning immediately. This independent board is charged with reviewing and approving noxious weed management plans for private property that are generated by complaints received from adjacent property owners. It is not responsible for reviewing or approving the city’s weed management plans for publicly owned property. Members must have experience in landscaping, agriculture or natural resource management. Meetings occur as needed but typically happen one to three times a year for about two hours.
