The Board consists of 5 members who possess the technical, professional, financial, business, or administrative skills necessary to accomplish the work of the Board. Meetings are generally held the fourth Tuesday every other month beginning in January at 6:00 pm in the City Commission Chambers. The board is assisted and supported by Stacie Mason, Director of Human Resources.
