|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 Budget Committee - Responsibilities include assisting the City Council in the examination and analyzing of proposed budgets for the City of Keizer. The Budget Committee meets in May of each year to review the annual budget. (1 Vacancy)
Ø Traffic Safety/Bikeways Pedestrian Committee - This committee is responsible for reviewing traffic safety issues in Keizer and making recommendations to the City Council for improvements. Members also make recommendations for future locations of bike lanes in the City and work to promote bicycle safety and use throughout the community. In addition to the monthly Committee meeting, there may be other events which require extra volunteer hours. The committee meets on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6 pm at City Hall. (1 vacancy)
Ø Stormwater Advisory Committee – Members of this Committee review guidelines and make recommendations to the City Council on the development of ordinances pertaining to illicit discharge detection and elimination, stormwater runoff control, and stormwater management.
