It is the desire and intent of City Council to encourage and support citizen participation in an advisory capacity governing the affairs of the City. Service through membership on a board, commission or committee is a valued, important opportunity for participation in an advisory capacity. To these ends, this policy sets out an orderly process for citizens interested in serving as members of a city board, commission, or committee and for the City Council to oversee appointments.
Thank you for your willingness to serve our community. Please read the
Friendswood Volunteer Guidebook
which should serve as a guide for participation of volunteers, describes the treatment volunteers should expect and explains what is expected of them.
