Board and Commissions Openings  Apply for positions on several City boards/commissions.

All About Boards and Commissions:  City of Midland boards and commissions play an important role in advising Midland City Council on ways to maintain and improve our community. From Aviation to Zoning, serving on a City of Midland board or commission is a great way to get more involved with your local government. The term of each board and commission member is typically three years. Appointments to these boards and commissions are made by the City Council in the spring of each year.

Below is a document giving a brief description of the City of Midland Council-appointed boards and commissions. For more information on each board and commission, click on the link below, or visit one of the boards and commissions web pages by clicking on the links at left.
