|City Government Volunteer Opportunities|
It is TIME TO GET INVOLVED! We know you are busy, but we encourage you to make time to get involved with your City government. Participation will help you improve your city. There are a number of ways to get involved; some take only an hour or so each month, others require a larger time commitment. You pick the ones that fit your schedule. Your options are listed below:
Ø Arts Commission – This Commission reviews, evaluates, selects, maintains, and documents all artwork, public art, and public murals within the city. The Commission may advise the City Council and City Manager on the management, execution, installation, or placement of the artwork, public art and public murals and will recommend guidelines for adoption by the City Council for the selection and placement of the artwork giving preference to Oregon artists. The Commission meets on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. (1 vacancy)
Ø Parks Advisory Board - This Board reviews and studies issues that involve development and maintenance of city parks and makes recommendations to the Council. The Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. (1 vacancy)
Ø Festival Advisory Board – This Committee serves in an advisory role to the City of Keizer by researching the feasibility for developing venues for events and festivals, streamlining policies and ordinances for potential events, developing an all inclusive community calendar, and developing a marketing plan to enhance the use of Keizer-area facilities for events, festivals, and conferences. The Committee meets on the 4th Monday of February, April, July, September and November at 6:00 p.m. (1 vacancy)
