The deadline for applications for City of Oak Ridge Boards and Commissions has been extended to December 1, 2015.

This year’s process is similar to previous years in that interested residents must complete a Boards and Commissions application available on the City Clerk’s departmental website or at the bottom of this page. Applicants may also attach additional documents that includes cover letters, references, and resumes.  The application allows residents to choose and rank their top three (3) board choices for membership consideration.

Paper editions of the on-line application are also available in the City Clerk’s Office located in Room Number 109 in the Municipal Building.

To be considered, completed applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1, 2015; late applications or submissions will not be considered. 

The election for all boards will take place at the regular Oak Ridge City Council on Monday, December 14, 2015.

Interested residents can also visit the City’s website to learn about the different boards’ composition, purpose, meeting schedules, and review the special qualifications for membership to certain boards.
