Volunteers sought for boards and commissions

Residents with specific backgrounds, including dentistry and fire protection, are being sought by the Village to serve on its many advisory boards and commissions. These citizen volunteers conduct in-depth studies, evaluate research and hold meetings that create the public record so critical to Village Board actions. A varied group of volunteers is sought to represent the Village’s diversity, and renters as well as homeowners are encouraged to apply.  Openings are available now for the Board of Health, Building Codes Advisory Commission, Housing Programs Advisory Commission, Civic Information Systems Commission, Community Relations Commission and Public Art Advisory Commission.
