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.
