Want to make a difference in your community? Do you have expertise you could share? The City Clerk is accepting applications from Napa Residents for a total of one opening; one to serve on the Napa County Library Commission. Applications are available online for submission at www.cityofnapa.org/BoardsandCommissions. Please submit application by 5:00 p.m. Friday, January 10, 2020.
The Napa County Library Commission functions under the authority of the County Board of Supervisors, reports on matters concerning the Library, and serves as community advocates on behalf of the Library. The Commission is made up of eight members appointed as follows: two appointed by the Napa City Council; three appointed by the County Board of Supervisors; one appointed by the Calistoga City Council; one appointed by the American Canyon City Council; and one appointed by the Yountville Town Council. Term of office is for a period of three years. The City of Napa representative to the Napa County Library Commission must be a resident of the City of Napa. Meetings are held the first Thursday of every other month.
The City of Napa recruits throughout the year for interested residents to serve on a variety of boards and commissions that examine issues of community concern. Volunteers appointed to serve on a board or commission help City Council and city departments examine issues and, in turn, shape the future of Napa. Board and Commission members are appointed by the City Council and terms vary but are typically either two or three years. Most board members must be city residents and registered voters.
